Chelsea vs Arsenal: Mudryk tells Shakhtar the club he wants to join

Arsenal and Chelsea are locked in a battle to sign Ukrainian talent Mykhailo Mudryk in this transfer window after the Blues made an entrance into the race.

The winger has had a good season and several clubs want to add him to their squad.

He has openly flirted with joining Arsenal and constantly likes posts talking about the move on Instagram, clearly demonstrating his desperation to complete the transfer.

However, Shakhtar Donetsk has rejected Arsenal’s offers so far in a clear sign they need more money to release him and that has opened the door for Chelsea to join the bidding.

However, a report in The Sun reveals that the Ukrainian has told his employers he only wants to join Arsenal.

He does not seem interested in holding talks with Chelsea and wants Shakhtar to reach an agreement with Arsenal instead.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have been a stable club for some time now and it is clear to see that we are on the cusp of something great.

This is one reason why players will want to join us and Mudryk is no different from them.

The winger will be a superb addition to our squad if we add him to the group and it will be interesting to see how the negotiations end.

  1. Just pay what they want, he’s clearly worth it and going to be worth more as he’s young and so talented, gapko as well I would give them what the want just to get him, I’m sick of arsenal ending up losing a player due to money ,remember Suarez at Liverpool,we lost our on him over a £ 1 wtf, arsenal should just pay for the players they want, the 2 I’ve heard is murdyk and rice there’s 2 players that are great ,kroenke cmon don’t leave it to the last days of the transfer league, were top and only need tweeked here and there and the league’s ours to lose honestly ,I still say a striker is a must that’s if murdyk isn’t coming to play that role or move martinelli to there with Jesus and murdyk on the wing. But whatever is going to happen please act quick hate this were linked with this and that and him and who else jeez just get the deals done please COYG

    1. So we should just pay anything they ask for right? Good thing you’re not the one running the club. If we do that, given the flimsy way and excuse Shakhtar used for justifying his ridiculous pricetag, other clubs will begin to see us the way they see Man Utd. Whenever Man Utd wants a player, they are told an outrageous pricetag because clubs know they will always be so foolish to pay. We don’t want that. Mudryk should push them from his own end given the efforts Arsenal has put in

    2. What about all the duds we avoided on because we wouldn’t overpay? Hindsight bias only looks are the incredible players like Suarez we missed.

    3. @Gunnermark
      So if we pay £100 for him, comes in and struggle or just turns out to be a normal nothing to write about winger. Then how do we recoup anywhere near the amount we paid for him?

      The majority of these big money signing have not workee out. Coutinho, Felix, Pogba, Lukaku, Pepe, Antony, Maguire, grealish, etc..

      £80 million plus+ for an unknown youngster from a completely different league / level. I am not sure.

      That makes me

    4. Pray tell how he is worth it, watching a few clips on Youtube doesn’t justify the huge fee his greedy club wants, if they continue with their greed, cut all contact and let him go elsewhere. It is embarrassing how they are behaving. Arsenal did not get Suarez over a pound, it was a release clause

  2. Please we need mudryk to arsenal arteta and his board spend what you have for the player to come to emirate stadium

  3. Teams saw what we paid for Pepe(lol), then saw how much we were willing to throw at getting Vlahovic and copped on that we were mugs. Jus sayin…

  4. one thing i observe about Mudryk is the fact that he can play on the left and right sides of our attack. He can rotate with Saka and Martinelli. I would love Arsenal to improve the bid a little.

    Chelsea are just playing games. they want us to overpay for the guy.

    Shakthar donesk should not be greedy. 65m pounds is a good deal for Mudryk.

    We need to sign another midfielder as backup for Partey. Douglas Luiz is the guy

  5. The story was told about a greedy dog and his bone.

    Shakhatar chief Darijo Srna is behaving like the greedy dog.

    Time the kid prepare his agent that he will be handing in a transfer request by a specific date if the stale mate continues.

  6. I think Kroenke and the guys in charge must be serious. If you want to be the best, you must spend a lot in the market. Mudryk , Rice and Vlahorvic will be enough for us to win this season’s EPL and go ahead to win the Europa. Guys dish the money out and let we the Fans enjoy.

  7. If arsenal fail to finalise Mudryk’s transfer and Chelsea finalise the transfer it will prove that arsenal is a club to seek better players for other clubs

  8. Mudryk is Ukrainian.

    Chelsea was built into a top club by a Russian oligarch.

    Is it a factor? Dunno. Only he knows, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he sees Chelsea in the category of “not a chance I’m going there”.

    The other factor is that he sees Chelsea in about 10th place in the PL and looking like a club on its way down. We all know where Arsenal is and our direction of travel.

    Shame he didn’t make this clear earlier – now that we’ve apparently bid £62m, that price won’t get any lower and imho it’s already too high for a boy from the Ukrainian leagues.

  9. If they don’t accept the latest offer we should walk away, just remember how we over paid for Pepé!!
