Ian Wright suggests Arsenal should count themselves lucky to have missed out on Mykhailo Mudryk as Leandro Trossard continues to show he is the best option among both players.
The Gunners wanted to sign the Ukrainian in the January transfer window and pursued an interest in him for much of the months leading to that period.
However, he eventually moved to Chelsea, even though the Blues entered the race late.
Trossard then moved from Brighton to the Emirates and has been arguably the best signing of the January transfer window in England so far.
The Belgian recently delivered a masterclass for the Gunners and Wright believes they signed the right man.
He said on his Wrighty’s House podcast: “I don’t care what anyone says, Mudryk, and we’ve seen up to this point, he wouldn’t have done what Trossard has done what Trossard has been doing up to this point.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Trossard has been a superb addition to our squad so far and deserves all the praise he is getting for his performances.
The Belgian has been a fine Premier League player before now, which helped him settle quickly at the Emirates.
Hopefully, he will continue to do well on our books beyond this season.

Not sure why people keep saying we dorged a bullet! All I see is Edu had a plan and stuck to it, didn’t accept to be mugged and went to the next target which has proved to be a shred Master stroke. Plus Chelsea are in shamples, we are the opposite.
With respect to Ian Wright, I think he is getting a bit carried away with the impact made by Trossard who is of course an established operator in the EPL whereas young Mudryk was bought at a huge premium for his undoubted potential.Trossard is a great acquisition in terms of his skills and football intelligence and he represents excellent value for money.However, from what I have seen of the young Ukrainian at international level, I will be very surprised if he fails to make a big impact for Chelsea once he has settled into the demands of the Premier League.
Obviously, the problem is Chelsea’s style of play not Mudryk, I won’t be surprised if he doesn’t perform next season, they have too many talents to not hit the ground running.
Mudryk in this current arsenal squad on the flank would have been dangerous … we play a better attacking football currently than Chelsea, with hungry young intelligent ballers.
The way I see it Trossard has that age and exp in the league to push us on to the title where as Mudryk was always for the future, just go priced out for him and money talks in football.
Two complete different type of players and sort of impact they will have coming into this Arsenal team. Trossard in my honest opinion is a better fit for arsenal the way he plays, reminds me Santi Cazorla with some of the footwork…. super signing along with Jorginho.
Edu has a plan and will stick to it and not be made to be a fool of or the club to be embarrassed. Between Edu, Mikel and Josh they have it together behind the scenes and the players on the pitch along with the manager/management are succeeding so far.
