In light of Arsenal’s interest in Mykhaylo Mudryk, Shakhtar Donetsk has apparently agreed on the asking price for their greatest asset.
Due to Nicolas Pepe’s loan move to Ligue 1 team OGC Nice, the Gunners are rumored to be searching for a winger.
Pedro Neto of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Mudryk, a 21-year-old winger for Shakhtar, have both been mentioned in connection with them.
According to The Media, Wolves have set an asking price for the Portuguese winger of roughly €60 million and are also hesitant to trade him.
Naturally, Mikel Arteta, the manager of the Arsenal, has chosen Mudryk above the other name on the list.
However, it won’t be simple to entice the Ukrainian either because Shakhtar is prepared to negotiate aggressively. The Ukrainian club has reportedly set an asking price of €50 million for the Arsenal target, according to TuttoJuve writer Mirko Di Natale.
It is obvious that Shakhtar wants to maximize the sale of Mudryk with just under two days remaining in the summer transfer window. The Gunners are cautious about overpaying on any of their targets, though, since they have already nearly spent £120 million on the market.
The Ukrainian has only made 28 appearances for Shakhtar’s first squad so far, and just four of those games saw him play the full 90 minutes. Still, he has managed to make the most of his opportunities and has impressed with two goals and 10 assists.
Mudryk gives his nod to Arsenal move with Instagram activity
The winger is understood to be aware of his links with a potential move to the Emirates.
He also came across an Instagram post that had an image of the Shakhtar winger in a Gunners home shirt. The caption mentioned that Everton’s bid of €30 million had already been rejected and Arsenal were pushing for a move.
The post caught the eye of Football.London, who reported that Mudryk had liked the post himself.
This is being seen as the winger’s approval for a transfer to the Emirates, however, the €50 million price set by Shakhtar could be a problem. The aforementioned IG post also suggested that the Gunners are only willing to go as far as €35 million to get the deal across the line for the winger.
