CHELSEA ARE OUT OF THE RACE FOR THE UKRAINIAN WINGER
According to numerous reports, Chelsea are out of the race for Mykhaylo Mudryk. This is because of two reasons. The first reason is they have signed Joao Felix on loan from Atletico Madrid for the rest of the season. Hence, it looks like the Blues will focus on signing a midfielder in the rest of the January transfer window. The other reason is the uncertain future of manager Graham Potter. At the moment, the owner Todd Boehly is making signings that will work for all the managers in charge.
Hence, for this reason, Arsenal are the only serious side in the race for Mudryk’s signature. Chelsea had a meeting with Shakhtar Donetsk in London. However, they have not made a bid for the winger. They have also not contacted the agent of the winger. Hence, Chelsea will have to gain serious ground to beat the interest of Arsenal. The Gunners have agreed to personal terms with the Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, they have failed to agree on a transfer fee with Shakhtar Donetsk after two bids were rejected.
Although, Arsenal are not going to leave the negotiations for the summer transfer fee. They want to agree on a fee for Mykhaylo Mudryk in the January transfer window. Hence, the Gunners are preparing a third bid for Shakhtar Donetsk. Sources close to the club indicate that the third bid is close to 80-85 million.
