Arsenal Submits Offer For Mykhaylo Mudryk As Team Defeats West Ham

Arsenal submitted a pre-draft offer around 65m euros for Shakhtar Donetsk full-back Mykhaylo Mudryk, sources told ESPN

Arsenal have been long-time suiters of Shakhtar Donetsk’s Mudryk, and now they have submitted a bid that is understood to total about EUR55m, including incentives.

Arsenal’s official bid for winger Mykhailo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk, their main transfer target for the coming transfer window, is believed to be a little below the asking price from the Ukrainian club.

Arsenal submitted a bid worth 60 million euros (PS53 million) to Shakhtar Donetsk for Mudryk. 

Calciomercato in Italy believes Arsenal have been working towards an agreement to sign Mudryk for months, with negotiations now likely to move into the next phase after the formal offer. The Italian news outlet add that Juventus want to sign the 21-year-old, too. 

Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid having been linked with the player in the past, and Shakhtar Donetsk are merely hoping an Arsenal offer kicks off an auction. Shakhtar Donetsk will want as much as PS85m for the full-back, but Arsenal are unlikely to be willing to pay that much. 

Shakhtar goalkeeper Anatoliy Trubin revealed a deal for Mudryk to Arsenal was possible. “I like that he is focused only on himself, his and the team’s game,” he said. “Fans don’t really see that much. No one sees what he is doing away from the football field..All these transfer rumors affect him only in a positive way, because he enjoys what he does. 

Arsenal coach Mike Arteta wants to get transfers done as soon as possible. “We knew the importance of getting players early in the summer and that is what we want to do in January,” Arteta said. “This is idealistic but sometimes it is not realistic. Obviously, if you ask my opinion, as quickly as possible we want the players in.”The transfer talk happens as Arsenal cements its standings at the top of the Premier League after goals by Boukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah, good for a second-half comeback victory over West Ham. Arsenal has lost only twice in the last 28 Premier League matches against West Ham, winning 21 and drawing five.
