Arsenal may miss out on signing Mykhaylo Mudryk this January transfer window. Mykhaylo Mudryk might end up joining Chelsea instead of Arsenal. The Shakhtar player is in demand this January transfer window after an amazing season so far. The player was involved in 18 goals so far this season. Moreover, 5 of them came from a Champions League outing. This performance proved that Mykhaylo Mudryk could become one of the finest players in Europe. Though signing the player could be difficult for these suitors as Shakhtar have set a high price for him. The race to sign him is seemingly led by Arsenal, who have been tracking him since last summer. Reports now claim that Chelsea are planning to hijack the transfer. Todd Boehly have been an admirer of Mudryk and wants to sign him.
Mykhaylo Mudryk transfer saga takes an interesting turn
Arsenal have already made a bid for the player which has been battled away. Although Arsenal are still optimistic to seal the deal. However, Shakhtar stands firm on their initial ask of £85m for the player. It seems like Arsenal’s dream to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk are fading. The news of Chelsea’s interest in the player will come as a huge blow to Arsenal. The Gunners are actively looking to add a new forward player to the team. With Gabriel Jesus injured, the Gunners would be looking for an extra boost in the forward line. A deal for Mudryk was viewed as a perfect scenario. But a deal at Stamford Bridge would ruin that perfect scenario for Arsenal. Chelsea are ready to spend money on young players and have deeper pockets than Arsenal. Seeing their priority signing move on to their rivals will be bitter pill to swallow.
Chelsea also wants to sign Enzo Fernandez this January. Though the biggest signing could arrive at Stamford Bridge in the form of Mykhaylo Mudryk. With Arsenal being put off by the valuation of the player, Chelsea are more than ready to meet those demands.
