Could Mudryk make his sensational Arsenal debut against Tottenham?

Arteta would surely love to see Mudryk “Hit The Ground Running” Versus Tottenham by Sam P

Mykhailo Mudryk joining Arsenal is no longer breaking news; he is widely expected to join. What’s new is when he will be joining. So, when can we expect the Ukrainian sensation to join the Gunners?

According to The Sun, Arsenal expects to complete the deal for the 21-year-old by the start of next week. Shaktar Donetsk is reportedly planning to attend a midseason training camp in Turkey next week, so the Gunners want to sign their star player before he commits to going to Turkey.

“And they are looking to wrap up a deal before Mudryk is due to travel to Turkey next week for the start of Shakhtar’s mid-season training camp,” they reported.

Arsenal was said to have submitted a second bid worth £62 million (the initial bid plus bonuses) on Monday after their initial bid of £37.5 million (plus an additional £17.5 million in bonuses) was rejected. Hopefully, this second bid seals the deal, but if not, it could help Arsenal and Shaktar Donetsk be on the table in the coming days. If Arsenal’s timetable for the Mudryk signing works out, the Ukrainian sensation could make his debut in the North London derby on January 15th.

Wouldn’t that be the perfect place to win over the Arsenal faithful?

  1. This is a player who was valued at less than 1 million when the season started ,how on earth as his value got to 100 million? it’s laughable .
    7 goals in the Ukrainian league and 3 goals in half a dozen games in the CL ,2 of which came against the mighty Celtic .
    Just feel this money could go towards maybe a position we actually need filling ,unless OFC someone is t signing a new deal .

    1. Completely agree with you Dan kit, the fee is laughable and we need cover for Partey, not Saka or Martinelli, where we have ESR back, plus Marquinhos and Vieira available. As for his first game to be against spurs, if we sign him, really!?

      1. But we also have Elneny and Lokonga as Partey cover. The fact is Mudryk has shown signs of a future world class player and Arsenal don’t want to pass up the opportunity. ESR is not a winger though he might have excelled there before but he is an 8. Most of his goals last season came from the LHS. Vieira is not winger. Marquinhos is far from ready, Cozier Duberry may soon overtake him even.

    2. Agree, plus I don’t understand some of the fans wanting to disturb the whole team combination because of him. I see fans suggesting we can move GM in CF and Mudryk on left. Why would Arteta do that? That’s stupid. Plus he had not played in EPL before and is coming from inferior league so I won’t hold my standards n hopes too high. He has potential but that is all he has at the moment. I reckon atleast 2 seasons before we see real of him.

    3. Mudruk valued less than 1 million? LOL where did you come up with that lie? Shakhtar rejected 30 million offer for him in the summer.

      Transfermarkt is an excellent site for player valuations but they only update values every 4-6 months so drastic things can happen during those intervals .

      1. At the start of last season he was an unknown outside of Ukraine with a transfer value of under £1m. Now he is one of the most coveted young players in Europe. Following an explosive rise, Mykhailo Mudryk looks destined for big things. Sky sports

    4. Clearly mikel has a better understanding of the team/vision than all of us who called for his head in 2021! Turns out he had a plan all along while we kept moaning on here. I’ll sit this one out. And BTW Dan you cant judge a player by his goals! GJ hasnt scored in 10 yet his influence is there for everyone to see

  2. Would prefer he was signed in time to make his debut in the FA Cup game to give a rest to Saka and Martinelli with him and Marquinhos both starting on either wing.

    I’m pretty sure Kane is out of contract in the summer wouldn’t it be hilarious if we re-enacted Sol Campbell part 2(he is a gooner after all) that would really put the nail in the coffin for the Spuds.🤔

  3. This must be a good sign the £62 mil will be accepted by the Ukrainians.

    Don’t know much about this transfer dealings, but one shouldn’t need a calculator to acknowledge a set figure, as the bid has been lodged for a good couple hours.

    So it must be some haggling over the structure of payments adds ons on bonuses, which would be a good sign, well depending if one is for the deal or not.
    But if the gaffer is charged with the responsibilities of a job, the best things to do I would assume is to back him to the max.

    But just looking on it would appears Edu is finally making head way in this long awaited deal, knowing we have more fish to fry.

  4. Why do o feel its going to be Pepe 2.0, I mean it’s not like Arteta and Edu have made wrong signings before. Ist sort of 60-40 at the moment interest of signing done by Arteta & Edu , we don’t want it to return to 50-50 if the Ukrainian turns out to be a flop for such high proce. He is good but I don’t think he is worth the asking price going around. On top of that he is not really a proven player. But I believe managers should always be given the players they want to succeed instead of giving them players the board wants. If he fits Arteta’s plan then go for it.

  5. While I agree with the sentiments expressed concerning our priorities having seen Mudryk for the full 90 mins on four occasions, I am confident he will not turn out to be another”Pepe”.He is a very good player who is on a par with Mbappe in terms of pace.It was interesting to learn how highly he is valued by the current Brighton Manager who considers him a future Balan Dor winner.Praise indeed from a well respect professional who has been around.Along with ESR,Vieira and the injured Jesus, we will have a stock of excellent ammunition upfront.The problem arises if and when we run out of petrol in central midfield?

    1. Thank you……. The is good no doubt even though I also have my reservations about the fees, but if arsenal paid huge some for him it’s bcos they see a future with him….. And for pple saying we should use the money to attend to important positions. In Arteta system, extremely fast and skillful winger is important to make it work

    2. Thank you!

      For Central Midfield, I believe the Tielemans deal could still be on; fingers crossed.

      Tielemans and Murdock, what a window this would be!!

  6. All I want is 3 points upon 3 point so we need more arsenals. Bring him in. We don’t want to fail due to lack of manpower. This our year.

  7. How revealing thet certain fans on this thread claim to know better than MA, a manager who has us seven points clear of the entire pack, including City.

    Presumably those fans, who include Dan kit, GB, Logic would all have us further still in front,if only we did not have the “Tragedy” of having MA in charge and being only seven points clear!

    1. What are you on about Jon Fox? I’ve always backed Arteta but am just questioning the need for him at the completely ridiculous price being mentioned. It’s all about opinions isn’t it, but of course yours is the only one that matters, as usual.

  8. lets make a 100m bid and get the deal done

    then go for Felix, Endrick and Valdovic before the window close

  9. Guys dont need to teach Edu or Arteta about their choices. They’re the one whos dealing with the team on a daily basis. Not any of us.Let them do their things to manage the team. Im sure they know better.
