Mudryk clearly tells Arteta how to sign him for Arsenal

Arsenal were closely linked with a move for the Ukranian midfielder Mykhalo Mudryk all during the summer, but it was reported that his price wa above what we were willing to pay at that time, but since then it has been very clear that the youngster has now improved even further this season, and now it is surely just a matter of time before he moves away from Shakhtar Donetsk to one of the top European teams.

Fabrizio Romano recently confirmed that the Gunners were still in contact with Shakhtar and it seems every time Mudryk says anything about his possible transfer, it always comes back to being an Arsenal player, and this time is no exception. He has appeared Mudryk has now made it clear he’d be open to joining Arsenal over someone like Real Madrid if it meant he’d play regularly, telling the Ukranian journalist Vlada Sedan’s YouTube channel his terms for leaving Shakhtar. Interestingly, Vlada also happens to be married to our very own Oleks Zinchenko, who may or may not have a bit of leverage in our favour..

When she asked him about Arsenal, he said: “Yeah. I check on them on MyScore and know when they’re playing I can check on them,” Mudryk said of Arsenal.

“I also watch them too. They are a very dynamic side, in general not just in controlling possession but also in scoring goals.

“From a purely hypothetical perspective if there was the option of being a bench player for Real Madrid or a starter for Arsenal, I’d probably choose Arsenal.

“But it’s a tough question and involves a lot of factors in my answer.

“I would first want to know from the head coach that even if I wasn’t a guaranteed starter, that I’d receive a chance.

“Essentially I need to hear directly from the manager what he envisages my role in his side to be.”

Well, from the sounds from that interview that it is now down to Arteta and Edu to make the next move in this ame of chess, but it certainly seems to be a real thing, and if everyone makes the right moves, both Arsenal and Mudryk will both end up winners.

I’ll just leave you with this tweet from Fabrizio Romano…..

  1. I’m not expecting any serous incoming transfer business this January for two reasons:
    1. January is hardly the window to find the right player at the right price .
    2. With the return of Elneny from long-term injury and the imminent return of Smith-Rowe, the Arsenal hierarchy may feel they have enough to prosecute the remainder of the season and achieve the club’s objectives
    But I hope I’m wrong!

  2. I’d send Emile on loan for the rest of the season. He needs game time, ahead if next season. We can then make a call after.

  3. Arsenal definitely need to strengthen squad in January.We need quality back up DM for Partey (Danilo) and quality back up RW for Saka (Facundo Torres)/(Mudryk). Arsenal should not pay more than 50m pounds for Mudryk, because Nkunku will be available for just 56m pounds and he is much better, scoring more goals. Arsenal don’t need to replace players of the starting eleven, so l would buy Torres instead.

  4. If Arsenal didn’t need to strengthen other areas
    on the pitch I could personally see this deal
    happening in January. WTS the following quality
    players could collectively be added to the first
    team for less than what SD is currently
    demanding for the young Ukrainian.

    Y Tielemans……£15M
    M Thuram…..£10M

    I would personally take my chances with Reis
    Nelson, Marquinhos and a returning ESR in the
    2nd half of the season.

    Now if the Kroenkes feel,it’s time to REALLY test
    City’s title resolve than MM, YT and Danilo would
    be a dream January window.

    1. Arsenal need to sign more players for back up due to stress from world cup, not all players will come back fit and stressless. Don’t forget their are more than 40 games to play more this season and they are all tough games and you can not gamble. Be it Europa League or EPL matches. So we definitely need more players because they need to take risk every match.

  5. Sincerely , Arsenal has a better chance this season in EPL and Europa league. We will do better next season by God grace , Yes but it may not be the same next season as the board planned the progress because city will come stronger again as well as Liverpool and United who has a good tactician and even Newcastle for that matter

    For Arsenal , It’s is now or never that we have the whole ball in our court.

    ESR&Nelson will not take us further and considering history between them , they’re even not reliable … they were available before season kick off then got injured just when window closes. To bank on there availability is a great gambling let alone they won’t take us further than where we are.

    Mikylo Mudryk, Youri-T and Danilo are good additions to our current team to contain the hectic fixtures ahead of us from Christmas to the end of the season as well as giving adequate rest which are both the reason why we want to sign them in the first place. … Jesus can make up for saka position just like pep and city use to utilize him and he does better delivery in that position than a number 9.

    We can look into Facundo Toress at the end of the season , if we can’t do his deal now in addition to Mudryk , Danilo and Youri-T.

    Instead of facundo-T , that’s if we must , while not utilize the fund for a left footed center back if legit left CB is available.

    In the presence of money , I’ll say add up another adequate Left footed back up for Gabriel Malgahese position now in this January because he’s the only one with no replacement in that defense unlike Tierny/Zinchenko , Tomi/white , Saliba/white.

    Elneny and Danilo will give adequate rest to partey as first and second option as a DM. Youri-T and Danilo will provide adequate rest for Xhaka position , Murdrik and 100% fit ESR will provide adequate rest for Martineli while Jesus is a proven replacement to give adequate rest and option for saka position while nketia will play as 9 and will deliver if given more game time and trust as a 9 rather than on the wing. Viera will also provide adequate cover for Odegard.

    Sincerely , Arsenal are highly favored this season , to gamble with our chances moving forward by not doing the right additions come January would be a grave mistake … take massive advantage of where we are now rather than future. That future successes has begun already.

    I just hope Mr Josh and Edu and Arteta does the right thing now that we are in charge of our current future in our hands 🙌

    Gunners till I die.

  6. It will all depend on what is the goal for arteta and arsenal board from what i see their ambition this seasion is top four not title challenge this makes it hard to buy such a player for 60m to the arsenal I know this seems not work at all it will stay in speculations untill it goes away but even if not for title challenge I would still get this lad to the squard i can see kevin de bryn in him
