Alex Crook says Arsenal is close to buying coveted forward

Talk Sport’s Alex Crook is confident Arsenal is working on a deal for Mykhailo Mudryk behind the scenes and the winger will join them this month.

Mudryk has been Arsenal’s main transfer target in this window and they have tabled two bids for his signature already but haven’t been able to add him to their squad.

The winger remains one of the finest young attackers in European football and Mikel Arteta believes he will boost their performance in the second half of this season.

Shakhtar Donetsk knows they have a top talent on their hands and want to make the most money from his departure.

Despite interest from the likes of Chelsea, the attacker’s preference is to move to the Emirates and Crook believes the deal will happen.

He said on Talk Sport:

“I think that will happen. I think negotiations are still going on – I know Chelsea’s name keeps being bandied around, but he wants to join Arsenal; Mikel Arteta very keen to sign him. I think the two clubs are getting close.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mudryk wants to move to the Emirates and that is a big reason he will get the move eventually, but it remains unclear if Arsenal can pull it off this month.

The Gunners must avoid being made to spend too much money for the 22-year-old winger who has not played for a top European league before now.

  1. Well, nice to hear Crookie so positive on the Mudryk signing.

    I would like to say I am sanguine that this transfer will finally go thru.

    BUT, I remember the months before the World cup when Arsenal were very close to signing new contracts with Martinelli, Saliba and Saka. We heard week after week that the signings were almost done, only to find out they were no where near done!!!!!

    So forgive me for if I have a small dose of scepticism over this transfer!!

  2. Mudryk’s current Ukranian club must realise he is bent on joining Arsenal so his head will not be there in their Club. so the best thing for them is to accept Arsenal’s third bid and let Mudryk leave. The arrival of Mudryk will definitely strengthen Arsenal in attack and Martinelli can play as CF, if and when required, as Mudryk could easily deputise him. I think Mudryk is comfortable playing on both wings so I hope this signing goes through.
