Arsenal set to complete move for coveted youngster after transfer fee is reduced

Arsenal is set to complete the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk after Shakhtar Donetsk decided to cash in on him and reduced their asking price for his signature.

The youngster has been one of the best attackers in Europe this season and has delivered some fine performances in the colours of his present employers.

Several clubs have been following him and Shakhtar continued to insist he was not for sale unless a suitor pays £90 million.

That fee was considered too much and was a way of putting off clubs who wanted to add him to their squad.

The attacker has always flirted with the idea of moving to the Emirates and could now get his wish as early as January.

A report on Mirror Football reveals Arsenal has agreed on a deal for the youngster for less than half the price Shakhtar wanted before now, as they close in on a £40 million transfer.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mudryk is one of the finest young talents around and it will be great to see him in our colours.

The Ukrainian has been brilliant for much of this season and there is little doubt he will replicate that form when he joins us.

He also has time to develop into one of the most prominent players in the world if we manage his talents well.

This is exciting news, but we must wait for the club to confirm his capture before celebrating.

  1. If we can afford it, then it’s fine. But I’ll prefer it if we can get him for around £35m. Anyway, My only concern is that we would still need another winger to play on the right as Mudryk plays on the left. If Barcelona will do business, Ousmane Dembele would be a better signing

    1. Wouldn’t touch any player that goes on strike to force a move, which is what Dembele did when moving from Dortmund to Barcelona.

      1. I would take dembele over this lad any day of the week .
        How many fans have actually watched Mudryk play ?my guess is probably 99% have not ,we get rumours that we are after some one and then fans scream that we must get him ,without actually ever watches him except from you tube highlights .
        Myself I have seen him play 3 times and he looked lazy waiting for things to happen and he also has been playing in a counter attacking team rather than a high press team where Arteta expects everyone to pull their weight .
        He’s a player that would suit a team like the spuds IMO .

        1. Agreed Dan. I also suspect he’s a lazy player from the little I’ve seen of him. There’s no way he’s benching Martinelli. That’s why I’m still against anything more than £35m

      2. As long as the said player is not disruptive in the dressing room, doesn’t matter if he forced a move or not. This is football. Dembele will adequately cover both wings with quality and is equally adept using both feet. I would very much prefer we get him. He’s also not as injury prone as before and he will not be a sure fire starter

        1. Going on strike to force a move tells you all you need to know about that person. He’s not a team player.

  2. Nope it’s not. Say that we have to wait with celebration.

    I am quite happy to hear that we’re close to this player as what i have seen of his skills are unique in the club.. and i thinkhe will help move Martinelli up front on striker position soon. That’s my point of view for now. Martinelli looks like a striker profile in upcoming future

      1. On YT highlights they always work hard. What is this your argument my friend ?! It doesn’t even make sense.

          1. He is lazy? yet Arsenal would have signed him last season but for the price. It’s obvious you have not watched Mudrik enough the young guy is very pacey and skillful. He can’t be lazy and ManCity, ManU are out to sign him that’s how Odegard and White were criticised by many pundit. So is Maquinho better? Just wait and watch Edu and Arteta sign him.

            1. If you scroll up on my post I said I have seen him play 3 times @Sylva and yes he looked lazy ronaldo like .
              Now coming back to someone who excuses someone having not watched him I take it you have extensive viewing of said player ?and by that I’m mean not a 10 minute best highlight reel on you tube .
              Let’s be honest that’s probably you’re experience of the player .

              As for you’re “ Arsenal would have signed him last season “ quote,do you have evidence of that because from what I remember (and we bid )we wanted Raphinha .
              Let’s see what happens post season regarding him and both of the Manchester clubs wanting to sign him (like you said )then come back to me and tell me you was right .until then 🤫

              1. Can you just give it a rest? What if Arteta is really interested in him would you stop him? You watched him 3 times and you’ve concluded he’s lazy huh? I’ve watched his performance against Real Madrid and was applauded by Madrid fans, you don’t get that often except you are an exceptional player.

                If Arteta is really interested in him then he must see setting in him.

  3. Mudry is not lazy i watched him in the champions league and on YT. Matinelli will have to up his game if we eventually sign him
