'I can reveal that Arsenal are': Fabrizio Romano shares exciting Gunners transfer update

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal are planning to make a new attacking signing in the January transfer window.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will be without Gabriel Jesus for the foreseeable future due to a knee injury which required surgery.

With the January window approaching, speculation linking Arsenal and Shakhtar Donetsk’s Mykhaylo Mudryk is intensifying.

Mudryk himself has said he’d like to play for the Gunners, and has expressed his desire to join a top club soon.

Now, Romano has shared the latest on the saga on CaughtOffside.

“I can reveal that Arsenal are considering a new signing because of the Gabriel Jesus injury being more serious than initially expected,” he said.

“However, Folarin Balogun is expected to continue his loan season at Reims, as things stand,” Romano explained.

“The Mykhaylo Mudryk situation is still the same. Arsenal are in contact with people close to the deal and they love the player, but there’s no official bid to Shakhtar yet.

“If he joins, it would be interesting to see if he could be deployed as a direct replacement for Jesus, or if Arteta would move Gabriel Martinelli into the middle. Either way, it would be a good problem to have!”

Arsenal on the right track for ‘unstoppable’ talent

Mudryk certainly looks ready for a big move, considering how he’s been faring at Shakhtar this season.

The 21-year-old’s club tally this season reads 18 games, 10 goals and eight assists in all competitions.

And in the Champions League, he has registered three goals and two assists from six outings.

This shows Mudryk has what it takes to shine at the top level.

And it looks promising in terms of Arsenal getting their hands on the ‘unstoppable‘ talent.
