Maybe Arsenal should go back for this Brazilian old flame that’s back on the market?

Arsenal, like an ex who feels cheated, must now try to forget about Mykhailo Murdyk. The 22-year-old has “flirted” with Arsenal about joining them in recent months, but this weekend he reportedly agreed to join their rivals Chelsea. You don’t know Arsenal, if you thought they were going to be a hopeless “ex”.
The Gunners, as per the Evening Standard, have already set their sights on their new fling, or should we say old flame, Raphinha, and are in contact with his agent Deco over the swoop.
Raphinha moved to Barcelona six months ago, but Rivaldo has revealed that the La Liga giant’s financial difficulties force them to consider offers for the Brazilian winger. “There are recent rumours about Barcelona potentially negotiating Ansu Fati, Ferran Torres, or Raphinha transfers in order to aid their remaining financial problems that continue to harm the club,” Rivaldo told Betfair (via Yahoo)
“Selling a player of Raphinha’s quality just six months after signing him would leave me very disappointed.
“On one hand, it would end the player’s chance of making a name for himself at the club, and on the other hand, it will give a sign to other players that they might want to think twice before deciding to join Barcelona in the future.”
Yes, missing out on Mudryk changes the dynamics of Arsenal’s winter transfer window, but Raphinha could help the Gunners forget they even wanted Mudryk in the first place.

  1. Well I mention it on another thread, Brazilian class is permanent.

    This proven campaigner is just what the doctor ordered to dampen Mudryk blow.

  2. Why are we goings for players that dont want to be here. He rejected us in the summer and hasn’t been that hot for his dream club.

    1. He may not have did that much for his dream club. Let’s not forget what he did for leads and was one of the stars of the premier league last season. Moving to a new club in a new country can take 6 to 12 months to settle in properly. But as he has already played in the premier League we would hope he settles straight into our energetic system. I actually think he would feed off the way we play.

  3. He did not want us, we should not go for players like this.

    We want players that want Arsenal, this say they will bleed sweat and tears for the club and supporters.

    Tbh I am not at all fazed by losing Felix and the Ukrainian Neymar to Chelsea.

    There is a possibility both players don’t work out. Now I know there is always a risk but I am glad with these two players we did not take the risk considering the fees quoted.

    There must be better value out there, trust Arteta and Edu to find it. They know we have a chance at the PL title and setting ourselves up for years.

    Let’s trust them a little longer.

  4. I agree wholeheartedly Reggie.He strikes me as a moody,temperamental individual who is not what we need in our dressing room..I would rather we target a top quality midfielder such as the Serbian , Savic .ESR is back and can provide excellent support for Martinelli,Nketiah and Saka.

  5. If Ferran Torres is availabe, he would be my preferred option. (Didn,t know he could be an option). Torres is a fantastic attacker.

  6. In life , PROVIDED you think positively and not negatively(as so many on here constantly do), when one door closes , another, in fact several others, open in front of you. Some have neither the vision nor the will to see those other doors opening up, but fortunately MOST of us have.

    And so do MA and Edu, you can be very sure.

    I was disapppointed when RAPHINA went elsewhere, as he is proven Prem quality and I would welcome him, IF we land him. Who knows though!?
