ESPN journalist declares that Mudryk “will be a player for Arsenal”

Arsenal’s longest transfer “rumour” since the never-ending pursuit of Gabriel Jesus looks like it is finally close to being completed, as Jorge Baravalle, a journalist that works with ESPN, has tweeted that Mudryk is going to be a “player for Arsenal”, and describes him as one of the jewels of European football.

There have been various reports earlier today saying that there has been a breakthrough in talks so it is looking likely that we will be seeing an announcement of a medical soon, although(knowing Arsenal) Mudryk will not be officially unveiled for some time yet.

This is the twwet in question…..

It will be fantastic if this comes true as from what we know, Mudryk is a fantastic young player with amazing potential.

And once this deal is finally done and dusted, Arteta and Edu can turn their attention to other pressing needs, like another top class midfielder.

There is also the matter of a backup striker to Eddie Nketiah, as Arteta said last night after the win at Oxford. “The problem is we have only one! And to go for that many months til Jesus is back is not easy. But we have to get the most out of the players that we have at the moment and if we can have some reinforcements – great.”

I think it looks pretty certain that we can expect a very busy transfer window ahead…

  1. If we pay more than 60 M for Mudryk, I believe we won’t spend more than 40 M in the summer

    If we sign Mudryk and Danilo, I think we can make an alternative method to surprise the opposition in the second half of some games, by pushing Partey forward and taking out Xhaka/ Saka/ Zinchenko

    ……………………… Ramsdale
    White . Saliba . Magalhaes . Tierney
    ……………………….. Danilo
    ……… Odegaard …………. Partey
    Martinelli ………………………………….. Mudryk
    ………………………… Jesus:

      1. Yeah. Imagine if Martinelli gets switched to the right wing in the second half to whip crosses and Partey can use his dribbling skills to wreak havoc in the opposition’s penalty box

        1. Danilo has been signed by nothinham forest, deals already agreed for less than 20m. He is not our class

      1. Or we could make our second-half team more attacking by using two strikers and two wingers:

        ……………………… Ramsdale
        White . Saliba . Magalhaes . Tierney
        ………,.,..… Danilo …………. Partey
        Saka ……………………………………..….. Mudryk
        ……,..… Martinelli …………. Jesus

        Unfortunately, Nottingham Forest seem to have won the race to sign Danilo

        1. How can you keep your Captain out of the squad…
          If you want to keep him out of squad then why he is a captain in 1st place

    1. Gabriel magalhaes needs to trust himself this second phase of premier league so we could win this title COYG forever

      1. If he can score five goals in EPL from attacking set-pieces as he did last season, I think we’ll become the champion

  2. It would be great for us to pull this deal through.
    It is looking quite positive as it stands.

    They have always wanted an extra winger since the summer from Raphina to Pino to Neto and now Mudryk.

    I guess they have a great plan on the drawing board to utilize an extra winger to ease the stress on Martinelli and Saka.

    Mudryk is an explosive speedster with flair. I believe he will do well with us. The team and bench are getting stronger.

    Our attacking options would be bolstered.

    Imagine a team like this with so much speed.


    Mudryk. Jesus. Saka.

    Odegaard. Partey.

    Zinchenko. Gabriel. Saliba. White.


  3. I think buying just Mudryk this winter should be enough. There are no doubt other positions to be strengthen but such players need time to adjust and accustomed with the current squad and the city. At least, Mudryk got Zinchenko to help him out. Come on guys. Relax. Despite all the complaints in the early season, Arsenal are top of EPL. Imagine if Arteta got more time next season.

  4. Hopefully this gets wrapped up by the end of the week and then move onto a central midfielder to provide competition/cover for Xhaka as Lokonga is not doing the business.

    1. Lokonga should never have been bought, we should have brought Azeez back for cover and 2 play cup games.

  5. I’m not going to complain if the deal is completed. Arsenal need reinforcing and the more options Arteta has going forward, the better.

  6. I’m not really sure what Arsenal is doing, I read Nottingham Forest is in talk with Danilo, does it mean Arsenal was never interested in him? I understand we can have problem when team like Chelsea and Man United are fighting for the same player as us but not N.Forest.

    We need not break the bank to get Danilo, why not get that dude?

  7. I’m seriously worried at the pace our recruitment is going, just like last summer, Arsenal might end up not signing anyone, we all know what that means at this stage of the season.

  8. I have stop watching news about Mudryk deal.
    Many of the click bait titles are down right unethical.

  9. Danilo looks like he is on his way to Forest. Imho a no.6 should be pt on the back burner till the summer. I can’t see us signing one anyway, we only chased Douglas Luiz because Elneny was injured at that time, our immediate need is a CM who can backup Xhaka and can compliment Elneny who doesn’t often break the lines with his passing often someone like Neves or Tielemens to partner him in UEL/FA CUP games although they both lack mobility which would put more pressure on Elneny to hold the fort but I’m struggling to think of any alternatives who can offer playmaking ability and can cover a lot of ground defensively.

  10. Arteta most likely will convert Mudryk into a striker. The guy plays like Jesus. He will fit the physical English Premier League. Looks like a good signing.

  11. Surely the gaffer must have a trump card up his sleeves, if reports is true of Danilo going to Forest.

    But that would have meant my assessment of Danilo isn’t so accurate, another think of note no other club has shown intrest, find that very surprising, maybe it just my like for the Brazilian, well only time will tell.

  12. Why are we not simultaneously trying to sign other targets for other departments where we need backup, or isn’t it possible to do this?

  13. If at the end of this season’s winter transfer saga as it’s involved the signing of Mykhailo Mudryk by Arsenal. And if they finally succeeded to sign amid another Epl top six team money bag very rich club side interest to sign him too this January.
    I think it’ll be the smartest of incoming transfer coup that Arsenal have successfully staged this season. Which must have left their all top six Epl rival club sides looking perplexed. Wondering what have they been doing watching Arsenal carried out such a top marquee signing coup under their noses.

  14. Good morning from USA Arsenal Fans. My crystal ball tells me that we are not buying MM again because of the publicity this transfer has generated and the length of time of this negotiation. That is not our style. Let us watch and see.

  15. Arsenal need another world class striker and adefensive midfielder to back up Netia/Jesus and Partey if we are to win the league.

  16. “the never-ending pursuit of Gabriel Jesus”

    I don’t remember that – it all seemed to be done and dusted as soon as teh window opened. There may have been rumours, but no deal can be finalised until the window is officially open.

    Seems we’re overpaying for Mudryk – and we still need a striker, which I don’t think Mudryk is… unless the plan is to convert him to that role (that would be interesting!).
