Arsenal ‘make £52.2m offer for Mykhaylo Mudryk as Mikel Arteta targets January signings’ to fight for Prem title

ARSENAL have launched a £52.2million bid for Shakhtar Donetsk wonderkid Mykhaylo Mudryk, according to reports.

The Gunners splashed over £100million on new recruits in the summer, bringing in the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira.

With Mikel Arteta‘s side surprisingly finding themselves in a title race, however, technical director Edu is eager to strengthen Arsenal‘s squad even further.

SunSport exclusively revealed last month that Gunners are chiefs are willing to inject £50m into the transfer kitty for the January transfer window.

We also told you that Ukrainian ace Mudryk, 21, is among the players on Arsenal’s mid-season wishlist.

And according to Italian reporter Mirko Di Natale, the Gunners have now made a formal bid.

He claims that Arsenal have made a £52.2m offer for the winger, with Shakhtar yet to respond.

Mudryk has excelled both domestically and in Europe this term.

He has scored eight goals and assisted a further seven in all competitions for his club.

Three of his goals have come in the Champions League – including one on British soil against Celtic.


He has also swiftly become a key man for his country, earning eight caps for Ukraine.

Arsenal are eager to strengthen in the wide areas.

The Gunners held a strong interest in Wolves ace Pedro Neto after letting Nicolas Pepe leave on loan in August.

A deal failed to materialise, however, with Arteta heavily reliant on Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli this term.

The duo have been backed up by Vieira, Reiss Nelson and Marquinhos – with the latter reportedly set to be sent out on loan.

Emile Smith Rowe, meanwhile has been sidelined by a groin injury.
