Trossard was a better buy than Mudryk for Arsenal- “Straight into their jigsaw”

Arsenal fans may be disappointed after missing out on Mykhailo Mudryk, a player they had been eyeing for months. But can we all agree that Leandro Trossard’s acquisition has healed the wounds left by Mudryk’s snub? It only took minutes against Manchester United last weekend to see what a “player” the 28-year-old is; there’s a joke that Trossard had more of an impact in that game in the few minutes he was on than Manchester United’s Antony, who played almost an hour.

Noel Whelan knows Arsenal could have signed Mudryk, but he believes missing out was the best thing that could have happened to Arsenal.

“He fits straight into their jigsaw,” said Whelan on Football Insider about Trossard’s Arsenal swoop.

“There’s nothing you need to change when you bring him in. He fits into their style of play, and he’s the type of player who can get better in a team like Arsenal.

“He’s shown fantastic form, and you look at that transfer fee—it’s a snip.

“Mudryk has gone to Chelsea for big money, and they’re getting a more Premier League-ready player for almost a quarter of that.

“It’s great business from Arsenal—he can help them win this title.”

If Noel Whelan’s claims don’t sum up Arteta as a transfer genius, I don’t know what does…

But, after Trossard and Kiwior, would it be too much to expect him to bring in another player this month, most likely in midfield?

  1. Leo Trossard was 28 in December. Does it sound old? No not at all. Remember Santi Cazorla. He was 28 in December when we signed him in the window. The little genius. One of my favourite Arsenal players of all time. Leo Trossard will become as important as Santi. A fantastic player. Mudryk eat your heart out.

  2. I firmly believe MA and Edu are very keen to land a decent midfilder before the JAN WINDOW CLOSES.
    But I do not see them taking ANY player, just to add numbers. Only IF they can land the one they want. Will they ? Who knows but they will certainly try hard!

  3. I think we should recall Charlie Patino from his loan spell, if it’s possible. He’s got all the attributes to be Partey’s understudy.

  4. In the early days of Mudrk it seemed a great idea as a player who might play in the first team with a bit of coaching and become a great player.

    When it became £89m for a risk, I was praying it didn’t happen.

    I wondered in the end if Arsenal were playing the game – realising they wouldn’t pay Shaktar’s price but hoping another PL club would. And of course, they did. And they still had to offer ludcicrous wages to turn his head from his preferred club, the league leaders.

    Not every negotiation reported in the press is as it seems on the surface. Our guys may have played a blinder on this. Time will tell – they have 8.5 years for him to become the new Maradona at that price.

  5. Noel Whelan’s claims makes MA a transfer genius?!?!

    The reason we bought Trossard, was because of the awful signing (and selecting) of Willian.

    I love what MA is doing, but please let’s not go overboard…. at least wait until the window closes and the season ends, but in the meantime, carry on MA, your doing an excellent job to date.

  6. Trossard is a good player, Mudryk is a fantastic player, but he had an unrealistic price tag.
    I would have loved to have Mudrik in our team but it didn’t happen. I think that Mudrik will not excel at Chelsea, they have too many players and time on the field will come hard. The kid made a bad decision but he will bring big money in the future for Chelsea

  7. I know Trosard was like an instant hit, as the 3points to which he contributed against Manure, May well come to be what gives us the League come season’s end. I also know it hurts to see Mudryk in Chelsea and many would prefer he doesn’t excel there as much as Trosard would for us, but, I strongly believe Mudryk would still have been the better buy and would have caused more troubles and added more quality to our attack both now and in the future. It is what it is.

    It will take bad management or a mishap happening for Mudryk to end up a flop. That kid is a talented baller.
