Fabrizio Romano shares dramatic new Mykhaylo Mudryk update amid Arsenal and Chelsea links

The Mykhaylo Mudryk transfer saga has just taken a dramatic twist amid links with Arsenal and Chelsea.

Early on Saturday afternoon, things seemed pretty straightforward as far as Gunners fans were concerned.

Chelsea had apparently cooled their interest, while Arsenal seemed on the right track to sign Mudryk.

Shakhtar Donetsk, meanwhile, continued to tease a potential move away for the Ukraine international.

And then, later on in the afternoon, came the shock twist and the fast-moving developments.

Chelsea were reported to have flown to Shakhtar’s camp in Poland to hijack Arsenal’s move for Mudryk.

The likes of Fabrizio Romano and David Ornstein have been updating fans on the developments.

Suffice to say, things are moving pretty fast.

At 4:36pm, Romano tweeted an exclusive to say Chelsea arrived in Poland today with a €100million bid.

Around an hour later, Romano tweeted to say Chelsea and Shakhtar had reached an agreement over a €100million bid.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s bid remained €95million plus add-ons.

And then, Romano reported that Mudryk had decided to fly to London to discuss the details over a move to Chelsea.

A medical is “ready”, with Chelsea “pushing on long term deal to get personal terms sealed.”

Drama

Well, the Mudryk transfer saga has taken a hell of a turn this evening.

It honestly looked as though Arsenal were calmly cruising to his signature, with talks seemingly edging towards a positive conclusion.

However, Chelsea appear to have stormed in and blown the Gunners out of the water with a larger bid. Something Shakhtar have been wanting all along.

Worse still for Arsenal, Mudryk is apparently on his way to London now to discuss the terms of the deal.

Arsenal and Chelsea were both being linked with Joao Felix too, and the Blues won that battle.

It was hoped that the Blues’ loan acquisition of the Portugal international meant they’d no longer pursue Mudryk.

However, that’s not been the case.

We’ll see what happens in the coming hours and days – but it doesn’t look good for the Gunners any more.
