Blow for Arsenal as Chelsea emerge with bid to sign target

Arsenal have been strongly linked with a move to sign Mykhalo Mudryk from Shakhtar in the upcoming window, but Chelsea could well be set to steal their man.

The Guardian claims that the Blues are considering their own offer to sign the Ukrainian winger, after the Gunners had their initial offer rejected last week, with Chelsea’s attack struggling to fire this term.

We are believed to still be in talks with Shakhtar, but are currently struggling to agree a fee at present, with his current club playing hard ball over his fee. The emergence of the Blues may well force our hand and pay closer to their asking price, or worse, we could miss out to our rivals…

As much as I believe Mudryk’s asking price is a risky prospect, I honestly do believe in the hype, and would be frustrated if we was to miss out on his signature at this point. He really does look like a thoroughly exciting prospect, although whether he is ready to make an impact and help us to try and win the English division this term is another matter.

  1. Clould be just a ploy for Shaktar to extort more transfer fees out of Arsenal. Arsenal has agreed terms with Mudryk, the player wants Arsenal, so Chelsea may upset the player. Given that Mudryk has to agree to the transfer, It may come down to whether he puts money before playing for the better placed term he prefers, with more chance of playing Champions League at this stage.
    As far as Arsenal is concerned they should have a valuation of the player, over which they are not prepared to pay. Paying “over the odds” for a player is not good business.

  2. No way, we should pay 80-100 mil. for a 21 year old largely unproven player.
    That money can be used more wisely.

  3. Eden Hazard comes to mind.
    This Mudryk kid is too good to miss out on and I feel we may be licking our wounds in years to come if we fail to buy him now.

  4. It’s almost like the club president seems to be on a loud speaker when making reference to Arsenal buying Mudryk, get the feeling he’s desperately appealing to other clubs.

  5. Shakhtar will want a bidding war so they can milk as much as they can from the transfer. I say we bid a package worth 60m if rejected walk away.

    He is not worth more than that IMO even the first bid was enough no more paying over the odds.

  6. Another bidding war? Funny how Chelsea and Utd have been chasing our targets! Says something about our scouting.
