Ornstein confirms that Mudryk is still Arsenal’s top target in January

I think that every single Arsenal fan in the world right now if fully aware that Mikel Arteta is very keen on bringing Mykhalo Mudryk to the Emirates from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Equally, the player himself has made numerous overtures towards the Gunners, and seems to be in a long running feud with his club over the price of the transfer fee.

With Shakhtar apparently wanting 100m for the best player to ever appear for the club, there was a new doubt that Arsenal would be able to negotiate a reasonable fee for the 22 year-old, despite Mudryk’s desire to come to the Premier Lwague.

But, we can all now be reassured that there is still room to negotiate, as the Arsenal oracle David Ornstein has just released this tweet a few hours ago….

This is definitely this year’s longest running Arsenal transfer saga and it reminds me a bit of Arsenal’s chase of Gabriel Jesus, which lasted a good few months before he finally arrived in the summer.

Hopefully we will have the same happy outcome that we had with Jesus…

    1. Except he’s repeatedly stated he would like to sign for us. In terms of Vlahovic, he’s done pretty well in an underperforming overall Juventus side so if it is another Vlahovic but this time he’s interested FANTASTIC. In my book anyway.

  1. Shakhtar are trying to milk this deal as much as they can. I see another protracted transfer that’ll go into the last days of January ’cause we’re never paying anything above 40 mil. Unfortunately, lack of a competent cover for GJ will cost as mightily

  2. I get you but difference is he actually wants to join the club. This news from Ornstein Is encouraging hopefully we reach an agreement soon so he is ready to join in early January. However is Shakthar prove too difficult in negotiations then we should move on quickly and not spend all window chasing him as there are other options out there like Felix and I would throw Ferran Torres into the mix, who Arteta knows from city who again is another player struggling dorgame time and not regarded as a regular starter for Barca.

  3. Speaking of Vlohovic , it will be interesting to see if the gaffer will be testing the waters again, as a player in his mould would be more of a priority in my opinion.

    Since picture to watch the Rams, things has certainly gone quite on that front , can only hope the game was good..

  4. “Like Jesus”?
    More like that failed saga for Vlahovic, surely ?

    I thought that the bid for Jesus was a nailed on certainty from the start, simply because it made great sense and so it proved.

    Just as I have all along predicted the Tielemans rumour, running longer than Coronation Street , is nonsense, as it makes no sense.

    I do believe we would LIKE Mudryk, but the sheer sum wanted makes it unlikely, even though not impossible, esp coming from Ornstein!

    1. The big difference is Mudryk has both declared his interest in moving to us and his public disdain at Shaktars pricing. Vlahovic was entirely different given he was assumed to always want Juve and that proved correct. Given his record at Juve though despite them doing badly not a bad pursuit in general if we could have convinced him correctly that we were the better choice.

  5. What happened with the Danilo rumour / gossip?
    It was the hottest for a few months but now gone quiet and Mykhalo Mudryk has taken over.

    1. It appears the gaffer may go for a more accomplish target or a finish article depending on the size of the war chest.
      This is base on recent noises going around.

      My take is we should still sign Danilo come what may.

      1. Amrabat would be a great option if Arteta is looking to sign a more proven player. However I would still be happy with Danilo same way.

    2. Mudryk was always hotter than Danilo but Danilo has indeed gone colder. My understanding was always we wanted a winger and a midfielder. We’d of taken an additional LCB opening the option to sell Cedric (which we appear to potentially have done but next summer, not Jan.) Maybe Jesus’ injury adds another Jan signing potentially, we will see.
