Has Zinchenko given Arsenal the lead in Mudryk race as Romano confirms interest?

With Arsenal sitting pretty at the top of the League table with a third of the season gone, it seems certain that the Kroenkes will be backing Mikel Arteta with whoever the Gunners want to bring in during the January window to sustain our challenge for the Premier League title.

We are all well aware that Arteta had the funds to bring in another midfielder but just failed to do so before the summer deadline, and it is still a fact that we need backup/competition for Martinelli and Saka in the forward line.

One player that has been continually mentioned in Arsenal rumours is the Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhalo Mudryk, and the player himself has not been shy about his liking the idea of a move to Arsenal.

It has been reported that Arsenal very own Oleks Zinchenko, Mudryk’s captain in the Ukraine national team, has given Arteta glowing reports about his young team-mate, and Fabrizio Romano has also been very clear that the Gunners are stll very interested in bringing him to the Emirates.

Romano told his Youtube Channel: ‘They have had very positive contacts on Mudryk on the player’s side, but then they decided not to proceed with Shakhtar because they wanted more than £40m to £45m.’

‘Now Shakhtar want more than £60m to £65m,’ Romano continued. ‘But Arsenal are still following the player.

‘They consider Mudryk a top talent and so Arsenal are still there but let’s see because now the race is open with many top clubs, but Arsenal will be busy in the next few weeks.’

Maybe Mudryk was over our budget in the summer, but with Champions League money practically certain for next year, I am sure we will be investing to make more certain we get there, and I can’t see a better player around right now that fits Arteta’s profile quite like Mudryk at the moment.

  1. Arsenal are also interested in Marcus Thuram who will come cheaper. Signing him and Danilo in January should be ok because thuram ia also a very prolific Center Forward and left winger.

    I think these are the 2 signings Arsenal will bring in when the window opens. The 2 will provide the much needed depth because both players can each play in 2 different positions in their varioous departments

  2. I have little doubt that ideally Arsenal would like to buy Mudryk.

    I HAVE EQUALLY LITTLE DOUBT THAT AT £ 60 MILL or more,(nor anywhere remotely near that figure)we will not proceed.

  3. The price is not just a reflection of the player at present, but also for what he may become in the future.

    If he continues to develop and improve, the 60-65 million price tag would seem good value.

    The 7 million gem Martinelli and 3 million Marquinhos are abnormal, and normally such returns are not seen so quickly.

    The 72 million on Pepe I think was due to lack of research and alleged shadiness and kickbacks by Raul. Rumors were that we were interested in Raphina for 65 million, so If this kid can produce now and even more so in the future, then it is money well spent.

    Many would pay 50 million now for White, even more so for Saliba. Not saying he falls in that category, but due diligence helps to avoid costly mistakes; whether overpaying or missing out on talent altogether.
