Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has explained the reason why it has been difficult to snap up the signature of Shakhtar Donetsk winger Myhaylo Mudryk.

Mudryk remains the top target for the Gunners but it has been difficult to seal because of the asking price by the Ukrainian outfit.

A second bid has been submitted for the winger but there seems to be silence from his owners over rejection or acceptance.

The Gunners manager also discussed how trying to match the valuation of a player can often prove difficult.

“I don’t know. Obviously, valuation have to be made between the selling club and the buying club,” Arteta explained. “It is difficult but as well, it shows a lot of clubs with a lot of financial power to spend big amounts and we have to compete with them.

The January winter transfer window is opened and the North London outfit is yet to seal any deal.

Following the draw against Newcastle United, the Gunners are believed to be under pressure and Mikel Arteta has asked the club to act quickly in order to sustain the season’s gain so far.
