The American believes Mudryk will be a top player for a sustained period at the club. Boehly said: “We are delighted to welcome Mykhaylo to Chelsea.
“He’s a hugely exciting talent who we believe will be a terrific addition to our squad both now and in the years to come. He will add further depth to our attack and we know he’ll get a very warm welcome to London.”
Mudryk could be in line to make his Chelsea debut away at Liverpool next Saturday. The 22-year-old only began pre-season training with Shakhtar last week so is short of match fitness.
However, his arrival will be a major boost to Potter’s attacking options. Chelsea had scored just 21 goals in 18 league matches this season heading into the visit of Palace.
