Arsenal are in positive talks with Shakhtar Donetsk to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk in the January transfer window. However, the Ukrainian giants have rejected the first bid of the Gunners.
Although, all the parties are hopeful of completing a deal in the first week of the transfer window. However, Shakhtar have clearly told that the Gunners must agree to the transfer valuation.
ARSENAL AND MYKHAYLO UDRYK TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to Shakhtar Donetsk CEO Serhii Palkin, Arsenal are in positive talks to sign their star winger Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, he has also said that they have rejected the first offer. This is because the first offer was way below valuation for them. However, they continue to have discussions over his transfer. He has also made it clear that the club are now ready to sell Mykhaylo Mudryk in the January transfer window. However, they continue to ask for big money.
He further said,
“Negotiations are continuing. We receive offers, but they are not the ones we would like to see on our table. “Now, literally in 5 minutes, I will have a phone conversation with Arsenal. We are open to negotiations, ready to exchange ideas and figures. If we will agree, then let it be so. “If we will not, then let it be another time.”
Hence, it is clear that Shakhtar Donetsk are ready to play the long game with Arsenal to get a good valuation for their star winger.
THE GUNNERS ARE ALSO KEEPING AN EYE ON THE SITUATION OF JOAO FELIX
A number of reports also claim Arsenal are keeping an eye on the situation of Joao Felix. Atletico Madrid are open to loaning him out for the rest of the season. However, the interested team will have to pay a loan fee and his full weekly wage during the loan spell. The report also confirms that they want a mandatory option to buy in the loan clause. Hence, it is clear that the La Liga giants are clear that they want him to sell in the next summer transfer window.
The report also claims the gunners will try to make the deal if they cannot sign Mykhaylo Mudryk. Hence, it is clear that Arsenal are prioritizing the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk. The report also claims that his agent is in talks with multiple clubs including Arsenal. However, no team has made a bid for Joao Felix. Chelsea and Manchester United are also monitoring the situation. There is also a chance that other top European clubs will also join the race.
The report also claims that Arsenal are trying to sign both Mudryk and Felix to cover up for the injury of Gabriel Jesus. Hence, it is clear that the owners are ready to give Mikel Arteta the financial backing in the January transfer window. However, the Gunners will also have to take care that they do not cross the Fair play rules.
