Arsenal yet to agree fee with Shakhtar Donetsk for Mykhaylo Mudryk - journalist

Arsenal and Shakhtar Donetsk are apart in their valuations of Ukrainian winger Mykhaylo Mudryk, according to Ben Jacobs.

The Gunners have been in the market for players that can play on either wing and the 21-year-old is one of the players on their wishlist.

However, Jacobs has revealed the two clubs are far apart in the valuations of the winger claiming that a deal is very possible.

Mudryk to Arsenal?

If Arsenal are able to complete a deal to sign Mudryk, they would be significantly strengthening their forward ranks while also making a smart investment for the future.

The 21-year-old winger came through the youth ranks at Shakhtar Donetsk and eventually made his debut for the club in 2019.

He has left the club on loan spells in the past but has now made 29 appearances for the Ukrainian giants, scoring two goals and providing 10 assists during that time.

Mudryk has also established himself as a regular for his country, making his debut for his national team in June 2022, earning five caps since then.

Fast, skillfully and creative, he possesses many attributes that would make him a success in North London under the stewardship of Mikel Arteta.

Ever since making his debut in 2019, he has established himself as a tricky winger with great ball control and an eye for a pass.

If he does join the club, it could ease the attacking burden on 20-year-old sensation Bukayo Saka, who started all 38 Premier League last season.
