Arsenal in pole position to sign No.10 Ukraine international


Arsenal are keen on signing Mykhaylo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk, and the London club have been asked to pay in excess of €50m. Ukraine international has made quite a name for himself with his displays domestically and in European tournaments.

Mykhaylo has two goals and three assists from five games across all tournaments, and his displays have caught the Spanish manager’s eye. It is no secret that the Gunners need to add more depth to their squad, and Mudryk looks like a quality long-term option for them.

However, the Ukrainian plays a role similar to that of Martinelli, and it will be interesting to see what happens to the Brazilian winger if Arsenal decide to spend over €50m on the attacker during the winter transfer window.

Gabriel has done well for the Gunners so far this campaign, and he will be hoping to start regularly for the remainder of the season. The 21-year-old winger is likely to demand assurances of regular football as well before opting to join Arsenal. It stays to be seen how Mikel Arteta handles the situation should the teams manage to agree on a fee first.

The Ukrainian winger is versatile enough to operate as a playmaker as well as a right-sided forward. His versatility will be an added bonus for the Gunners if they manage to sign him. Mykhaylo Mudryk has the potential to reach the very top and the Gunners could provide him with the platform he needs right now.
