Report: Arsenal make £52.3m bid for Mykhaylo Mudryk

Arsenal have made a £52.3 million bid for Mykhaylo Mudryk and are awaiting a response from Shakhtar Donetsk, according to a report from 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 goal involvements have come in the group-stages of the Champions League.

It appears that there is likely to be plenty of Premier League interest in Mudryk. And he is open to moving to England – specifically Arsenal.

The youngster told CBS Sports earlier this year that he would struggle to turn down the Gunners if the chance presented itself.

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

According to Calciomercato.It, Shakhtar are mulling over a bid from Arsenal for Mudryk. And the bid is apparently worth £52.3 million.

The Gunners have reportedly been working on a deal for Mudryk for months. And it seems that they are working on getting a deal done in January.

It would be a huge statement if Arsenal brought Mudryk in during the winter. Clearly, the January transfer window is going to be a crucial one for Mikel Arteta’s side.

As things stand, they are going to be players in a title race in the Premier League. But the depth Manchester City have will make Pep Guardiola’s side the overwhelming favourites in the battle.

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

Perhaps Arsenal have moved a step closer to bringing him to the Emirates.
