Arsenal warned about wasting time as they pursue Ukrainian star

Arsenal has been warned they need to act fast in their bid to sign Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The 21-year-old has been arguably the best Ukrainian attacker in Europe this season and has caught the attention of several clubs around the continent.

Arsenal has been watching him and the Gunners are believed to have an offer in mind for him in January or in the summer.

However, they are not the only club keen on the winger and the transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has warned they have to act fast.

In his exclusive column on Caughtoffside, he writes:

“For sure Arsenal remain interested in Mykhaylo Mudryk, they are following him for a long time but there’s still nothing decided. Shakhtar Donetsk want more than €60-65m to sell him now and it’s not easy. The race is open, if Arsenal really want him they have to move fast.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Signing Mudryk in January or in the summer will not be straightforward, considering the clubs looking to sign him.

The youngster has been in stunning form and he seems like a top player in the making.

He will provide more competition for a place to our current options, which is a nice position to be in for any manager.

  1. Once bitten twice shy, constantly reminded by the misfiring Nicolas Pepe, would choose Wolves Neto all day, as a premier league season campaigner.

  2. I do not envisage us even wanting, let alone being able to do so, spend a sum of £60 mill on ANY player. I see our club being far wiser now (at long last!!) and seeking top value players only.
    We need several players, not just one, and money will not stretch that far.

    So VALUE FOR MOMEY WILL BE KEY THIS COMING JANUARY. And that rules out daft money for any one player , no matter how good he may be.

    1. You say that Jon but only 3/4 months ago we were desperate to pay £65m for Raphina, As no alternative was bought I presume that money is still available for someone in that position. And with income from CL now looking likely who knows what we can spend on any player.

      1. Stevo, You presume far too hastily and prematurely. Remember that we now need to urgently budget for large increases in contracts for SAKA, SALIBA and MARTINELLI, as current perfs demand we do.

        I stand by all I wrote in my above post and will be proved correct.

      2. We weren’t desperate to pay for Raphinha…
        Edu in his interview earlier this season stated that Arsenal only enquired about him from his Agent Deco who happens to be Edu’s friend. And Deco told him they had an agreement already with Barca. And Arsenal decided not to pursue further.
        Chelsea were the ones desperate to get him.

    2. But Arsenal was even prepared to spend more than the reported £65 mil it would cost for Raphinha.

      Please remember Vlohovic, Arsenal would still break the bank to sign him if he was available, he fits the profile of what’s gaffer is looking for, young strong, technical and lethal in front of goal.

  3. Fabrizio McBoatface says…. yawn.

    Why would he presume to tell Arsenal/Edu and co how to go about transfers? In the last window the business was done early and quickly – looked like it was all done and dusted prior to the window opening.

    If Edu wants Mudryk, it will be sorted out in time I feel sure. BUT…

    With a WC coming up there’s a lot of playing time before anyone can play for a club and injuries will change everything. Many clubs will make the mistake of signing players based on WC performance, which most of them will regret since there are few countries that can field a team with good players in every position it makes some players look better than they really are.

    Everything will be different this January with a WC just finished.
