Ornstein urges Arsenal to go for Joao Felix and leave Mudryk alone for now

There is obviously massive problems with Arsenal’s pursuit of the Ukranian winger Mykhaylo Mudryk, and according to the most recent news it looks like the Gunners have hit a brick wall according to Mudryk’s agent, so surely it now makes sense to concentrate on other more realistic targets, because the fact is that Mikel Arteta still needs a much bigger squad to continue challenging on all fronts.

The other big rumour involving Arsenal at the moment is the possibility of getting Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix, who may be very expensive but is a more experienced and proven performer than Mudryk at the moment, and the Arsenal oracle David Ornstein thinks that Mikel Arteta may move on and try and complete this deal first.

“It will be interesting to see if Arsenal look to bring forward some business or get some other business done first,” Ornstein said on NBC Sports.

“They are interested in Joao Felix at Atletico in a loan deal. If the numbers come down significantly from where they are now – and that’s why it’s not happening right now – then perhaps they’ll try and get that one in first. And that will take the pressure off them in the Mudryk pursuit.”

It is probably a very good idea for Arsenal to take a step back and reassess their options in the light of the latest news, and one thing is for sure, Joao Felix would also be an excellent addition to the squad for the rest of the season….

  1. Sorry to say. I have the feeling we are not going to sign any quality player in this window cos the prices of our transfer targets are unrealistic high.
    Mudryk and Felix are high quality players without doubt, but enough is enough , we have offered what we can. Please don’t just sign “a body”. I agree with Arteta, we are only going for high quality players, who fit in our playing system. But I would be so sorry to see, if Mudryk goes to Chelsea. But on the other hand please don,t pay crazy money for him. There is a risk spending on a player, who hasn’t proven himself in the Premier League.
    At the moment we have to rely on Eddie Nketiah and Emile Smith Row.

    1. Yeah agree any more than 45/50 mil Is too risky on mydrky if Chelsea get him and he’s a star so be it , we can’t gamble on relatively unproven talent at that money , felix is a safer transfer Thurman and zaha would be even better IMO
