Arsenal are reportedly still leading the race to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk in the January transfer window. However, now other top European clubs are also showing interest.
Although, the number one priority for the Ukrainian winger remains the Premier League giants. However, the Gunners are currently unable to agree on a transfer fee with Shakhtar Donetsk.
ARSENAL ARE CURRENTLY UNABLE TO AGREE ON A TRANSFER FEE WITH SHAKHTAR DONETSK
According to reports, Arsenal are unable to agree on a fee for their main January target Mykhaylo Mudryk. The report also claims that all the parties remain in positive discussions over the transfer. Hence, the rumors are baseless that a deal is done and dusted. Although, it looks like the winger has agreed on personal terms. Hence, both the Gunners and the player’s agent are pushing to get the deal done. However, Shakhtar continues to demand a mega price tag.
It is because they think they can cover their financial losses of the year with the potential sale. Hence, they are doing their best to get every single pound out of the Arsenal pocket. The Gunners are also trying their best to agree on a fee that complies with the fair play rules. Mykhaylo Mudryk has made it clear that he wants a January transfer at any cost. Hence, a number of other clubs are again coming back in discussions. A report also claims that numerous clubs are in discussions with Shakhtar Donetsk.
A NUMBER OF TOP EUROPEAN CLUBS ARE MONITORING THE SITUATION CLOSELY
According to reports, top European clubs like Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United are also monitoring the situation. However, the winger’s agent has made it clear that his client only wants Arsenal move. Hence, they have not made a bid for the Ukrainian winger. Although, they are ready to make a bid if the Gunners move falls through. Shakhtar Donetsk are also trying their best to start a bidding war for Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, the winger has only made contact with Mikel Arteta’s side.
Newcastle United were also ready to make a 50 million bid for Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, the agent made it clear that he will only move to Arsenal. Hence, the magpies are also on the waiting list. However, if the race opens up, they have the big money to win the battle for his signature. They have already defeated AC Milan for the signing of Sven Botman. The Gunners were also beaten by Newcastle United for the signing of Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimaraes.
Hence, Arsenal have to be aware of the financial capability of Newcastle United. Mykhaylo Mudryk is doing his best to facilitate his move to the Gunners from his side. However, he cannot do anything if they cannot agree on a transfer fee with Skhathar Donetsk. Although, the Ukrainian giants deserve the high fee after finding such one of the best wingers currently in Europe.
