£50m attacker says he wants to leave in January, after claims Newcastle want him

He said this amid rumours of Newcastle United’s interest . The 21-year-old told Ukrainian host Vlada Zinchenko in an exclusive YouTube interview about his future.

The Magpies have been linked with a move for the youngster, who is worth around £50 million. They were previously reported to be planning a move for the player during the summer window.

“From a purely theoretical/fantasy perspective, if there was the option of being a bench player for Real Madrid or a starter for Arsenal, I’d probably choose Arsenal,” he said.

“It’s a tough question and involves a lot of factors in my answer”.

“I would first want to know from the head coach that even if I wasn’t a guaranteed starter, that I’d receive a chance”.

“Essentially, I need to hear directly from the manager what he envisages my role to be in his side [to influence such a decision]”.

“The team’s style of play will play a role [in my decision]. It’s very important to me.”

However, if the Gunners are not willing to cough up Shakhtar’s desired fee, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the 21-year-old look elsewhere.
