Shakhtar to Sign a Top Class Striker?

Ukrainian media reports that Shakhtar are about to sign one of the biggest and well known strikers in Europe... with the money they get from the Tymoschuk deal... They are prepared to spend around $30mln.
Of course this could all just be rumours with no solid ground, but if they were to sign someone who do you think would it be?

My possibilities would be:
a) Bojinov - a great striker that cant find his place in Italy. He's also from Esatern Europe.
b) Mutu - eastern Europe, Romanian and affordable. Lucescu certainly could pursuase him - an all Romanian strike force (Mutu + Marica)
c) Zigic - again eastern Europe (Serbia), tall, powerfull and with a lot of potential. It seems Juve is intersted in him, but if Shakhtar offers the right price, there is a remote chance.
d) Arshavin - a possibility of an exchange shouldnt be disregarded. But, personally, i doubt Zenit will let go Arshavin immedeately the sale of Kerzhakov.
e) Kone - not as well known as the others but Shakhtar were considering him at one point. His latest interview saying that if he did go to Russia/Ukraine, he;s career would be over makes this transfer seem much less realistic, but money talks louder, usually.

I doubt Shakhtar would go for any of the older strikers. And these 4 listed above are all reasonably young and already somewhat proven and well known.

None of that guys worth 30 millions dollars,15-20 millions dollars in my opinion even for the fsu market.

But Akhmetland will buy a striker that is for sure especialy now with fresh money coming from timochuk sale.

If anything, it has to be E. European for the next CL campaign.

Arshavin - below 0% chance of that transfer.

If you buy Kone for 30$mil It will be a sad day for ukr/rus football, the man is wort 3-4$mil.
Zigic is the only man worth some money on your list, if not considering Arshavin.
Mutu you could get easily imo if you tried.
Bojinov is just overrated, he would fail misurably in ukr/rus cause he has already been recognized as one of the best talents in Seria A some years ago, no way he could have succes here! too much expectations he wouldnt live up too.

Bojinov is the only one imo who would cost close to 20 m euros

mutu = less than 10

Zigic = 10 m

Arshavin = just joined sevilla wont leave soon and not worth 8 m

Kone = please, he is not even close to ronaldo's stats at psv

Out of that list, IMO..

1) Zigic
2) Mutu
3) Bojinov

I'd be so happy for Ukrainian football if they bought one... It doesn't matter who get quite frankly, because when we get our all Ukrainian defence no striker is getting through it

Koné definitely won't move to Ukraine, his ambition is to play at a European top-side which is PSV at this moment more than Shakhtar, so a next step in his career would be a move to a bigger competition like Spain, England or Italy. If that's not possible he stays loyal to PSV.

I don't get Tymoschuk move, if Shakhtar wants to move on they should surely keep these players who're a symbol for the club and who got quality.

He is the best russian player at the moment. Imo clubs like Spartak and Shakhtar would go higher than 15 for Ars´havin.

Eduardo would be the best choise. Very nice if he came to Shakhtar. Better than Tevez and all the other transfers imo.
