Arsenal make £52.3m offer for Mykhaylo Mudryk

Arsenal have made a £52.3m bid for Mykhaylo Mudryk and are awaiting a response from Shakhtar Donetsk, according to a report by Calciomercato.It.

Mudryk is widely considered one of the most exciting talents playing in Europe right now. The 21-year-old has eight goals and seven assists in 15 games in all competitions this season. Five of those direct goals have come in the Champions League group stage.

It seems there is likely to be a lot of Premier League interest in Mudryk. And he is open to moving to England, specifically Arsenal.

the young man told him CBS Sports earlier this year that he would have a hard time turning down the Gunners if the opportunity presented itself.

And it seems that, indeed, that opportunity is about to be put on the table.

According to Calciomercato.It, Shakhtar are considering an offer from Arsenal for Mudryk. And the offer is apparently worth £52.3m.

The Gunners have reportedly been working on a deal for Mudryk for months. And it looks like they’re working to close a deal in January.

It would be a huge statement if Arsenal brought Mudryk over the winter. Clearly, the January transfer window will be crucial for Mikel Arteta’s side.

As it is, they are going to be players in a Premier League title race. But the depth that Manchester City have will make Pep Guardiola’s side the heavy favorites in the battle.

Signing a player with Mudryk’s potential could be huge for the Gunners. He is a ‘scary’ prospect who is already shining on the European stage.

Perhaps Arsenal have come one step closer to bringing him to the Emirates.
