Journalist says Arsenal has still not got over losing Mudryk

Mykhailo Mudryk was the main January transfer target of Arsenal and it was obvious for a long time that he also wanted to join the Gunners.

However, that never happened and he moved to Chelsea instead, even though the Blues entered the race late.

It was embarrassing to Arsenal, who had to settle for Leandro Trossard and the Belgian has outperformed the struggling Ukrainian.

Arsenal was sure of the talents of Mudryk and knew how they would use him if he moved to the Emirates.

But Chelsea acted fast to leave the Gunners red-faced and journalist Dean Jones says Arsenal has still not gotten over the disappointment.

He tells Give Me Sport:

“They still have some annoyance over the Mudryk situation.

“They’ll still be frustrated that he didn’t end up with them because they know his abilities and how high his ceiling could be.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Mudryk would have been a perfect addition to our squad and losing him was a big blow regardless of how positive we choose to be about that.

However, Trossard has been a very good signing and it is only right that we continue to support the Belgian for now and help him deliver.

  1. Move on we will have new targets in the Summer, and if we win the PL and the EL, then a lot of players will want to get on board with Arteta and Arsenal, this is just the beginning, Potter will be sacked and I have a sneaky feeling Zidane could become their manager in the Summer

  2. I kindly suggest that journalist Dean Jones does not know what the hell he is talking about – dip stick.

    I am just a fan but I would speculate a sigh of relief more like at dodging a bullet.

    1. TC I suggest that though it may well be accurate to call Jones a “dipstick”, it cannot be classed as being “kindly”.

  3. Time will tell whether it was a fortunate miss or didn’t sign a great player. As far as Mudryk goes, perhaps we won’t miss him at all.

    Trossard has had instant impact for 1/4 the price, and we still have to see what Marquinhos can offer us in the future as well.

    Not to mention Balogun, so I boldly say we have enough talent in and on the way that we can get by just fine without Mudryk, especially for that price.

  4. It is said a bird in the hand is worth two in the bushes.

    Maybe Mudryk is worth £100 mil perhaps £200 mil for that matter, but am happy with a Tossard on fire than the misfiring little rat.
