Latest Mudryk update from Donetsk is very positive for Arsenal

The official opening of the January transfer window is just a couple of weeks away, but the fact is that the in-depth negotiations between Arsenal and Shakhtar Donetsk have been continuing for months.

There are suggestions that other Premier League clubs are also involved but I think it is obvious that the Gunners are the clear fronrunners. Mudryk has stated many times that he is very keen on moving to the Emirates in January, but then the Donetsk boss made a ridiculous claim that he is worth as much as Jack Grealish, at around 100 million.

Now today it is being reported that Shakhtar Donetsk chief executive Sergei Palkin has revealed he is unsure if a deal can be finalised in January, but then says it is 50/50, and then says they are “not too far” apart in reaching an agreement.

Speaking to The Athletic, he said: “To be honest, I do not know. At the moment, we are quite far from what we want and what clubs propose.

“It’s not so far but it is not what we need. We have discussions. One club, another club, they negotiate. We are in the process. Will it close this month? I don’t know. It is maybe 50-50 with regards to the winter transfer window. I don’t want to talk about figures now. We are in discussions. We have interest from some English clubs and we are in the process.”

“Every day, I read about another English club,” he added. “If you believe the newspapers, it is all of (the English clubs). But to be honest, it is true as I have had contact from many clubs. A lot of them are involved in this process.”

So, what I gather from that is:

Firstly, Mudryk is definitely going to be sold.

Secondly, the price has not been finalised but “It’s not so far”

Thirdly, Yippee! Mudryk is coming to Arsenal lol!

Who else thinks this all sounds very positive?

    1. Mudryk is sound, can play as a false 9, Good defensively, fast and has really improved on his scoring abilities, so signing him could make a whole lot of sense,
      It would also allow Martineli, the opportunity to play as CF.

      1. If Mudryk can play false nine well, it’d be a good deal. But his YouTube highlights showed that he predominantly played on the left wing

        Martinelli is thriving on the left wing and he also played there for Brazil, so I’d prefer him to focus on it. We’d better sign a specialist CF

      1. Martinelli is our most dangerous LW and he also showed it in World Cup, so Arsenal had better not ruin his development by moving him to CF position

        In my opinion, Martinelli won’t be consistent enough to do hold-up play and win aerial duels. It’d be better if we sign a specialist CF as an alternative to Nketiah or recall Balogun

        1. Funny thing is Martinelli was actually a striker and got moved to LW at arsenal as Lacazette and Aubameyang were still there.

  1. Pls arsenal board,we need a good replacement for Gabriel Jesus and after that, let’s the board get us a standout center midfielder,and after they should proceed.

  2. From what I have read between the lines, its sounds positive.

    Haven’t seen enough of the lad to give this deal my blessing.

    Apart from Lonkango and Viera to a lesser extent, the gaffer has been excellent with his signings not to mention the big ones that got away.

    So if the gaffer do make a bold move for the kid it I will suction it

  3. I did be very happy to see this lad play for us . Jesus will be out for about 3 months which is a long time and Matinelli can play through the middle just as he did in his 1st season with us were he banged double figure goal

    1. Most of Martinellis goals in the first season were in the league cup only a couple in the Premier League Martunelli not strong enough to play as main striker and Nketiah just not good enough If the boy from the Ukraine can play as a number nine let him do it permanently as Jesus when fully fit wont get enough goals to win the top orizes

      1. Martinelli was initially a no.9 and got converted to LW, He’s the bravest and most stubborn guy in that team, he’s far better than Nketiah or any other person in no 9. Martinelli should play no 9.

  4. The Question is will Mudryk make our squad better and create competition to bring out the best from players?

    If yes, then bring him in if the cost is reasonable. Long term gain should outweigh short term thinking.

    We need more depth, competition, and quality on our title run as well as for the CL next year. I think Mudryk can bring that, so it would be a good move.

    Jesus is the starter and will be on his return, so a plan B striker can be found without costing a fortune or disrupting our transfer funds.

  5. I think the article writer is deliberately couinting his chickens before they are hatched, as so often happens on JA. Esp by inhouse writers.

    My personal view is that we DO want Mudryk,only at the right price, but as yet nothing much can be gained by idle speculation.
    JA of course has a different agenda from my own truth derived view!

  6. We don’t need Mudryk…ESR and Vieira can play on the LW
    We need Cody Gakpo..he can play on the right and also through the center and can score goals…And he is captain of his team which means Gakpo has leadership qualities
    And we need a DM

  7. We need a player type like J.DAVID,DEPAY, JOAO FELIX, and IHEANACHO that is suit to jesus style of playing

  8. I dont want to elevate my Blood pressure concerning all these rumours,we r the gunners,we know how things are done in every january transfer window,youwill see arsenal linking with all players in the world,but at the end they will get none,maybe because of G.Jesus injury,we might get one.
