Shakhtar Donetsk's highly-rated playmaker Georgiy Sudakov will “move to a top club in Europe” this summer, according to the club's CEO Serhii Palkin.

Sudakov has been linked with a host of top clubs in the Premier League and beyond and his progress is being monitored by the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool. The Ukraine international is expected to play a key role for Serhiy Rebrov's side at Euro 2024, having started all but one of his country's international matches in 2024. He will look to build on an impressive run of form at club level last season, where he registered 10 goals and six assists in 34 games last season.

Speaking to CBS Sports, Palkin said: “We have Sudakov, an important player of our squad, and we certainly believe he will move to a top club in Europe.” Shakhtar's CEO previously said he would be looking for a fee of more than 50 million euros to part ways with Sudakov, but asked whether there was financial pressure on his club. He added: “It is difficult to say about the price. Now the market determines the price. We are waiting for the European Championship, he is an important player for the national team.”

Sudakov was the subject of a failed transfer bid from Napoli in the January transfer window, a bid reportedly worth €40 million ($43 million) and retaining admirers in Serie A. Wherever he ends up, it is expected to be for a significant fee. , one that will take many clubs out of the race for his services. Sudakov's agent Vadym Shablii told CBS Sports: “I think only 15 teams in the world can buy him.”

For that price, the candidates would get a player considered perhaps the best young talent remaining more than two years after Russia's invasion of Ukraine, a period that has produced even more players. greater instability for his club Shakhtar Donetsk. For his part, Sudakov has made it clear that he is ready to leave a hard life behind him: playing football in a war zone.

'There is no safe place in Ukraine today' he told the i last month. “Everyone is afraid. Mentally it is difficult. Every time my daughter hears the sirens, she runs away to hide under the blanket. It is difficult to accept this. I have the opportunity to move my family outside Ukraine. “
