Discussing Arsenal? Mudryk in serious chat with club director

Mykhailo Mudryk remains a serious January target of Arsenal and the attacker is hopeful the deal will happen.

The Ukrainian has flirted with the idea of moving to the Emirates variously on his social media pages and does not want to join another club.

Arsenal has made a move for him, tabling at least two offers for the winger, but it has not been good enough to make Shakhtar Donetsk release the 22-year-old.

Mikel Arteta’s side will likely make a new attempt to buy him before the transfer window closes, but has he been pushing for the move too?

A report in the Daily Mail reveals he was caught in deep conversation with his club director, Darijo Srna, in their midseason training camp.

It remains unclear what the pair discussed, but it will not be a surprise if they talked about his desire to move to the Emirates and the situation of the talks between both clubs.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mudryk clearly wants to move to Arsenal, which means the Gunners must do their best to make the transfer happen sooner than later.

If he does not move to the Emirates this month, he might choose another suitor to join at the end of this season, or his transfer value could become even bigger.

  1. or he could have a head turned mare for the 2nd half , or get crocked and never be the same and his valuation plummet. Dangerous and silly game Shak are playing which could backfire on them

  2. We already saw how Lyon played hard with us when we approached Houssem Aouar a few years ago and what’s the scene now is more embarrassing to Lyon not for Arsenal. Hope Shak keeps that also in mind when they negotiate…….

  3. Arsenal must worst work hard to get this guy because he can really bring change to the team. We need to knw that as a team, we still have more and tough matches of which using nketiah wont be the best option. So, the club should rush for this guy before it becomes a story.

  4. He is not worth the prices being quoted IMHO, maybe if he was more proven but he is just potential at the moment.

  5. I’m sorry to be wishing that this doesn’t happen at the prices being bandied about.

    When we were first linked with Mudryk I liked the idea (but seeing him as a player who might develop quickly – but did need some development for PL-readiness) but now that we’re hearing £88m or even £62m I’m completely cold on this.

    It’s not only the overpaying and the risks of such a high fee, it’s also the expectations it places on him and the possible effect on his performance and…

    The effect it will have on transfer activity as a whole. Spending £88m on a position that’s not in desperate need when the are other areas that need cover or strengthening – e.g. it doesn’t *seem* to solve the problem that we only have one recognised striker fit. It just doesn’t feel right – I can only hope MA/Edu know what they’re doing.
