Football transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has told Arsenal that they will ‘have to move fast’ if they want to secure the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk, in the January winter transfer window.
The 21-year-old has been superb this season, making the likes of Brentford and Everton to be considering moving for his signature.
In 14 matches across all competitions, he has scored seven and assisted seven.
Speaking this week, Mudryk’s Shakhtar teammate Anatoliy Trubin joked that the dressing room has already accepted that the young winger will join the Gunners.
“I like that he is focused only on himself, his and the team’s game,” Trubin said. “Fans don’t really see that much. No one sees what he is doing away from the football field.
“All these transfer rumours affect him only in a positive way, because he enjoys what he does. And, in the team, we can tell him; ‘well, you’re already at Arsenal, let’s all go!’”
However, Fabrizio Romano, who has confirmed Arsenal’s interest, said Arteta must move in quickly.
He wrote for CaughtOffside: ‘For sure Arsenal remain interested in Mykhaylo Mudryk, they are following him for a long time but there’s still nothing decided.
‘Shakhtar Donetsk want more than €60-65m to sell him now and it’s not easy.
‘The race is open, if Arsenal really want him they have to move fast.
‘As I said a few days ago, Arsenal are also keeping an eye on [Orlando City winger] Facundo Torres.
‘They have a few options they like in this position but there is nothing advanced for the moment.’
