Arsenal have clear run to sign ‘unstoppable’ attacker right now – Fabrizio Romano

Fabrizio Romano told Caught Offside that Arsenal seemed to have a clear path to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk.

As a result of Gabriel Jesus’ recent injury, Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar are likely to seek out attacking reinforcements in the month of January.

As a result of a knee injury sustained during the World Cup, the Brazilian might miss up to three months of action.

The Gunners have been linked to a move for Mudryk for quite some time, and journalist Dean Jones said on Wednesday that Arteta’s squad will make an official bid for the rising star.

Now, according to the most recent report on Mudryk’s future, Romano claims that Arsenal may be the only club interested in signing him at this time.

Romano said to Caught Offside that Arsenal are the only team currently pursuing Mudryk’s signature.

“At the moment it’s Arsenal pushing for Mykhaylo Mudryk but there’s still no advanced negotiation on the fee,” the transfer insider said. 

“Everton and Brentford wanted him in the summer, Brentford were actually first European club to move for Mudryk many months ago thanks to Lee Dykes who wanted him.”

Shakhtar have stated publicly that they value Mudryk at approximately £86 million following his outstanding start to the season. The Athletic has suggested, though, that the Ukrainian club would be willing to accept a reduced transfer fee.

Prior to Shakhtar’s elimination in the group stage of the Champions League, the 21-year-old impressed with three goals and two assists in Champions League action.

Mudryk has already made it obvious that he would be interested in a move to the Emirates Stadium, and Arsenal will want to negotiate a lower fee for him.

Shakhtar would undoubtedly want a bidding war for their ‘unstoppable’ winger, so it could be to their advantage if they are the only team interested in signing him.

Arsenal must bolster Arteta’s team in January if they wish to preserve their position atop the Premier League. After Jesus’ injury, it is even more crucial that they offer their manager with an additional attacking alternative.
