Premier League club Chelsea have officially completed the signing of star forward Mykhailo Mudryk from Ukrainian side, Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 22-year old arrives at Stamford Bridge after penning an eight-and-a-half-year deal for a fee of 70m euros, plus a further 30m euros in bonuses.

Rivals Arsenal had wanted Mudryk but they were beaten by the Blues to the striker who scored seven goals in 12 league appearances for Shakhtar this season.
