Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the situation of Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic. However, they have not yet made a bid for the USA winger.
Hence, Mykhaylo Mudryk remains the transfer priority for the Gunners. Therefore, it looks like Pulisic is the backup option for the Gunners.
ARSENAL AND CHRISTIAN PULISIC TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Arsenal are monitoring the situation of Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic. The report also claims that Chelsea will only consider the permanent selling of the winger. Hence, a loan deal is out of the question for the Gunners. The report also claims that the Blues will demand 25-30 million for their winger. Pulisic has only 18 months left on his contract.
Hence, they want to avoid losing him on a free transfer. The winger has also indicated that he is open to trying a new adventure. Manchester United were also trying to secure a loan deal for the Chelsea winger. However, the Blues rejected the approach on the deadline day in the summer transfer window. Hence, it looks like Arsenal will have to put forward a serious proposal.
MYKHAYLO MUDRYK REMAINS THE PRIORITY IN THE JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal still sees Mykhaylo as their main priority. However, they will assess other options. He further said,
“Pulisic was already on Man United’s list in the summer, but Chelsea didn’t want to loan him out at that time,”. “His future depends on the proposals, at the moment the situation is still quiet; Arsenal’s priority remains Mudryk for January but it’s still early.”
At the moment, the only thing that worked in Pulisic’s favor is that he has Premier League experience. Hence, that is something Arsenal would love to have in the second part of the season. However, the Gunners fans have made it clear on social media that they only want Mykhaylo Mudryk. Hence, the final decision is now on Mikel Arteta to choose between the two players.
Arsenal will hope that they can finally sign their new right-winger in January. A report also has claimed that owners have provided Arteta with the funds for the right-winger. Mykhaylo Mudryk and Christian Pulisic have also indicated that they are open to a move to the Gunners.
