The following is a summary of Arsenal’s transfer on Tuesday, December 20. 

Tielemans update as Arsenal ‘cool’ interest elsewhere

Arsenal has reportedly “cooled its interest” in Palmeiras midfielder Danilo ahead of the January transfer window, opting instead to pursue Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.

The Gunners have been connected to Tielemans for a number of transfer windows, with the 25-year-old seemingly nearing the end of his deal with Leicester City.

With Granit Xhaka already in his thirties and Mikel Arteta having declined to sign a new contract with the Foxes, Mikel Arteta could seek to improve his midfield options this summer.

According to sources via with  90min, Arsenal have “somewhat cooled their interest” in Palmeiras midfielder Danilo, 21, who was called up to the Brazil national team during the summer, “in favor of pursuing” Tielemans.

Mudryk price tag no longer an problem

Arsenal is now aware that Shakhtar Donetsk will accept an offer for Mykhalo Mudryk that is less than £100 million.

The Gunners are in the lead to sign the 21-year-old despite his lack of success in the UEFA Champions League. 

He has exploded onto the limelight because to his great performances in the UEFA Champions League. David Ornstein of The Athletic has recently provided an update on the transfer fee, adding, “Mudryk is the player they [Arsenal] want to sign. They followed him for a long time,” he told Hayters TV.

“He was on their list of potential candidates during the summer transfer window. They are in talks with Shakhtar, with the player’s representatives.

”Arsenal won’t want to go that high, I don’t think any club will. I think the likelihood is Shakhtar will come down in price when push comes to shove.”

Rabiot future uncertain as Arsenal move hinted

The prior words of Adrien Rabiot, a midfielder for Juventus, may shed light on his immediate future in 2023.

The French international is reportedly dissatisfied with Italy at the moment, despite Manchester United’s failed attempts to sign him in the summer.

Rabiot had previously expressed interest in a move to England, where he spent a year in Manchester City’s youth academy.

“I feel attracted by the football, by the Premier League itself and its super competitive nature. I loved my time there, even if I was young. I liked the culture and the life; my family liked it too,” he told ESPN.

“I am not indifferent to playing in England, but there will be many options to consider. I have not spoken with Juve about the future, for example as our start to the season was tough, plus the World Cup was coming and I wanted to focus on it. After the World Cup, I will start thinking about my future more concretely.”
