Arsenal negotiations continue after opening bid confirmed as rejected by club

Shakhtar Donetsk have turned down Arsenal’s opening offer to sign Mykhalo Mudryk in the upcoming window, but Fabrizio Romano states that negotiations between all parties are ongoing.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with the Ukrainian since the summer, and after an impressive run of form over the last few months, his stock has risen somewhat.

While a number of clubs have been linked with his signature, we appear to be leading the charge at present, but our opening offer has not been deemed satisfactory.

The opening bid sounds as though it was more of a tester than a serious offer that we was expecting to be accepted, but the fact that negotiations are continuing tell me that there was ground for movement on both sides, and that a deal could well be in the making.

That isn’t to say that we aren’t set for a challenge by another club who also see the potential in Mudryk, but for now, there has to be a little excitement aroud our potential capture.

    1. Out of interest and im not trying to be clever here but how much do you think Saka , Martinelli would fetch after not playing a single game in the ucl ?
      I think most Arsenal fans would be shocked if one of them was sold for under 50 million but I could well be wrong .

  1. 🚨
    : “Arsenal will know they need to kick on in the transfer market if they want to make that final push for the Premier League title. The Kroenkes are backing them to go & get that title – so let’s see what they do in the market.” [NBC] #afc

  2. I don’t like big money move, it comes with pressure on the player, spot light and what have you.

    If the greedy club can’t take £70m let’s look elsewhere

  3. Ridiculous stance from the Ukranian thieves
    Gakpo is a much more accomplished player and is 30 mil less . Walk away if they reject next offer.
    Get Tielemans now and wait for Jesus.
    We need midfield reinforcements.

  4. The Ukrainians are trying to compare him to Anthony, the Brazilian is a proven monster in my opinion.

    But I think the kid real cost will lay somewhere between £60 – £65 mil.

    He may need to hand in a transfer request if the £60s reaches on no progress make, but I think this deal will goes through, although the longer this goes on the likelihood of a spoiler join the field.

    1. Sorry @Gunsmoke Antony is an overrated one trick pony. Ask any sane united fan and theyll tell you Gabby is the superior all round player. Tune out media and twitter nonsense and focus on Antony’s skill level, youll realize he struggles to beat his man (passes back), not a team player(ego), and mostly lacks positional awareness when out of possession.

  5. I have watched this young Ukrainian, and he is very quick.

    He is great when attacking.

    What I have not seen him do is defend.

    Arsenal are an all action team, both attacking and defending.

    This type of playing style is why Tielemans would not work!!!

    I hear rumors about us chasing the midfielder Serbian midfielder Savic at Lazio.

    I fear that Savic may not fit our all action style.

    Remember Edu, the ONLY Premier League game we have lost this season, was against Man Utd, when Partey did NOT play.

    Now, I will sit back and see if we manage bring in any new recruits!!!

    1. i agree with you JW. 100%.

      What Partey brings to this team is immense.

      Keeping him fit for the entire season is key.

      We have an opportunity to win the league.

      Maybe Elneny should play europa league games alongside Xhaka.

      What i like about Tielemans is his ability to score from outside the box. He can play further up the pitch and rotate with Odegaard.

      Fabio can play on the right side of attack. when Fabio came on against Westham, Saka moved to the left side of attack. I dont think Fabio can play in midfield as a 10. He does not have the stamina like Odegaard. He can be easily bullied. he can easily give away possession which can put pressure on the defence.

      So, imo, Tielemans should rotate with Odegaard.

      ESR, Martinelli, Fabio, Reis Nelson, Saka, Mudryk can rotate for the wide attacking roles. We should have a team that can compete for the FA Cup, Europa league and Premier league trophies.
      there are many games to play. Every team we field for each competition should be strong enough to win it.

      If we get Mudryk, we might not need another striker.

      Nketiah and ESR can rotate till Gabriel is back. Our Offensive wide players will score more goals.

      Our next 4 games is interesting.

      Man united

      3 wins (Brighton, New castle, Man united) and a draw (Spurs) from these matches will be key towards pushing for the title
