ARSENAL WILL HAVE A BIG CHANCE TO SECURE HIS SIGNATURE IN THE JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW
Mykhaylo Mudryk has said in several interviews that his first preference is to join Arsenal in January. He has also requested Shakhtar to reduce his price tag. The Ukrainian are demanding a mega fee of 100 million for their star winger. Hence, the winger wants them to reduce the fee to facilitate a move to Mikel Arteta’s side.

Shakhtar Donetsk have advised him to stay at the club until the end of the season. However, the player thinks this is the best time for him to join Arsenal.
Arsenal will also hope that they can sign for a fee of less than 100 million. This will help them spend the rest of the budget on the midfielder signing. Hence, Mikel Arteta will have to make some big decisions on transfers in the January transfer window.
