Are Chelsea going to force Arsenal to break their transfer record to secure Mudryk?

Why Arsenal May Need To Break Their Transfer Record In Order To Have A Successful Winter Transfer Window

Arsenal goes into the winter transfer window with one goal in mind: to strengthen their offensive line. Because of Gabriel Jesus’ injury a few weeks ago, adding another attacker this winter was simply not in question.

Mykhailo Mudryk could be the attacker who moves to the Emirates. For months, the Shakhtar Donetsk star has been “pushing” for a move to Arsenal, and failing to sign him will be a “transfer failure”.

Arsenal appeared to be the only club with genuine interest in the “Ukrainian Neymar” in recent days, but the Guardian now reports that Chelsea are also interested. Chelsea’s interest could be bad news for Arsenal.

How is this bad news? Shakhtar may be pleased with Chelsea’s entry into the transfer race for their star player because it allows them to stick to the £85 million price tag they have slapped on him.

If Arsenal is certain Mudryk is their man, they should meet Shakhtar’s asking price, which could result in their most expensive purchase.

Arsenal’s most expensive signing up to now is Nicolas Pepe, who cost the club £72 million in 2019. If Arsenal fails to do so (meet Shakhtar’s asking price), Chelsea, who are known for their willingness to spend, could easily steal Mudryk from under their nose.

Anyway, Mudryk has already stated his preference for Arsenal, so should we be concerned about Chelsea?

  1. Chelsea are not interested at all in Mudryk. This is some media fantasy in order to try to derail Arsenal plans but it won’t happen.

  2. But Chelsea should stay out on this, the player in question said himself that he desires to be at Arsenal. They should not go and embarrass themselves. No amount of money they will pay and get the best of a young lad. His will is not set on Chelsea.

  3. It is said when Eskimo have money him buy fridge.
    Such is the behavior of the bridge these days.

    As much as I support the gaffer on getting his target, we should not be push to spend like Manure.

    If we already agree personal terms with Mudryk, that’s is a sign we knows how to reach him, he should be encouraged to do more like handing a transfer request.

  4. This article is based on a fallacy that whatever any possible rival club bids, that we would gladly pay more inorder to land Mudryk. This is so FAR from truth as to be laughable and pointless reporting it.
    Yes , we DID way overpay for Pepe and that was down to shady SANLLEHI, WHO LEFT SUDDENLY, OVERNIGHT, SOME TIME LATER.

    Perhaps that tells you something, Daniel N, that it will NOT be repeated!

    It tells me that. But then, I am intelligent!

  5. I don’t expect AFC to break their record because of Chelsea, owing to Chelsea’s owner is not like Abrahmovic that we all know is ever ready to spend carelessly

  6. Chelsea are reported to already have an agreement in place for Christopher Nkunku. So what would they want a €100m player who is similar to Nkunku for?
    Surely even Chelsea have more sense than that?

  7. Chelsea , man c , liverpool psg could all have a bidding war and end up at 150m ,makes no odds , he only wants us at our best offer

  8. For that kind of silly money let them have him.

    A price of $100 million, he would needsto be able to come in and produce yesterday, and he ain’t it.

    He is a talent to be developed.

    Our scouts will have others lined up if that is the kind of money they want for the kid.

  9. YouTube’s Arsenal News Channel reported that Arsenal has agreed personal terms with Mykhailo Mudryk for a 5 years contract. Arsenal has submitted a new offer and negotiations are heading in the right direction.

  10. January 1, 2023. Let the transfer games begin!

    Forget references to the 100M sticker price for the underwhelming Grealish and Lukaku, 75M for Anthony too, and just focus on the 45M the Reds paid for Gapko – a far superior player. The true market value for Mudryk is no more than 50M.

    Can’t afford a repeat of the Nicolea Pepe mistake.

    In fact, as Premier League championship contender and leader (by a whopping 7 points) we should be asking for a deep discount on all deals.

  11. If he is arriving at the Arsenal then either himself or Martinelli might be deployed at CF. Martinelli is in top form and Mudryk will not be happy playing too many matches from the bench, he or Martinelli must be versatile is my thinking. Or I wonder if Mudryk can play the KDB role, KDB also began his career on the left wing, there must be some versatility I think.
