Chelsea will reportedly not focus on signing Mykhaylo Mudryk in the January transfer window. Arsenal are the clear favorites to sign him at the moment.
The winger also prefers a move to the Gunners in the Premier League. Hence, the Blues will focus on signing a midfielder after completing the loan signing of Joao Felix.
CHELSEA AND MYKHAYLO MUDRYK TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Chelsea have left the race to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk. This is because of two reasons. The number one is the player is not ready to move. It is because Mudryk prefers a move to the Gunners. Another reason is the transfer fee demands of Shakhtar Donetsk. Shakhtar Donetsk continues to ask for a transfer fee of 90-100 million for their star winger. Mykhaylo is also not pushing for the Chelsea move. Hence, there is no pressure on the Ukrainian side.
However, the case is different with Arsenal. Mykhaylo Mudryk is desperate to move to the Gunners. Hence, Shakhtar are ready to reduce the fee for the winger. Hence, it looks like Chelsea will have to focus on other signings in the January transfer window. They have already signed Joao Felix for the remainder season on loan. Whereas, they have also signed Cristopher Nkunku for the next summer transfer window. Hence, the Blues have numbers in the forward department.
THE BLUES ARE LOOKING TO STRENGTHEN IN THE MIDFIELD POSITION
According to reports, Chelsea will now focus on signing the midfielder. This is because of the uncertain future of Jorginho. Jorginho’s contract ends in the next summer transfer window. Hence, there is a chance that they could sell him for the right price. This is because the Blues want to make a young squad for the coming years. Hence, the ownership is very careful in handing contracts to senior players. They are trying to sign World Cup young player of the year Enzo Fernandes from Benfica.
However, the Portuguese giants are not willing to reduce their demands. They want his full 120 million release clause paid. Hence, for the moment, the deal is not happening. Therefore, Chelsea will focus on a cheaper midfield signing. This is because they have to make sure that they do not break Financial Fair Play rules in the January transfer window. Hence, it looks like the Blues will have many decisions to make in the coming days of the short window.
Chelsea will hope that their next transfer target is not like Enzo or Mykhaylo Mudryk. Hence, they are also looking at players that have their contracts ending with their respective clubs. Whereas, Graham Potter will also have to save his future in the coming games. There is an indication that he could be sacked if the team does not win against Fulham.
