Romano says Arsenal have explored Mudryk deal; Everton bid rejected
Fabrizio Romano has taken to Twitter to report that Arsenal have explored a deal for Mykhaylo Mudryk in the last few days, while Everton have recently seen a £25.6 million bid turned down.
Romano has suggested that several sides want Mudryk. The Ukraine international is catching the eye with some superb form for Shakhtar Donetsk, providing 10 assists in 28 games, as well as scoring two goals.
Reports earlier this month claimed that Arsenal wanted the winger. And it was suggested that they may need to be prepared to pay £20 million to sign the 21-year-old.
However, it seems that they may need to offer significantly more.
Romano has now provided an update on his future. The journalist suggested that Everton have made their move with a big bid for the youngster.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have made enquiries with those around the player regarding a potential deal of their own.
Here is what Romano posted on Monday…
Keep an eye on top talent Mychajlo Mudryk. Everton had €30m verbal proposal turned down by Shakhtar Donetsk last week. ⭐️🇺🇦 #EFC

Arsenal have explored Mudryk deal
With so much interest, it would probably not be a huge surprise if Mudryk moved before the deadline. And it does appear that Arsenal are looking to sign another attacking player before the window closes.
Clearly, he is not going to come cheap.
It is not entirely clear how Everton structured the bid. But it was certainly a considerable offer from the Toffees.
Arsenal have money to spend after missing out on Raphinha. They have also moved a significant amount off of the wage bill by loaning Nicolas Pepe out to Nice.
And if the Gunners fear they may be about to miss out, perhaps they may look to make sure that they do manage to secure his signature.
