However, the Ukrainian wonderkid has hinted at him being open to the move by liking a picture on Instagram with him photoshopped in an Arsenal shirt.

Mudryk to Arsenal?

Mudryk liking the mock-up picture on Instagram should excite Arsenal fans as it clearly shows he is open to moving to the Emirates Stadium.

The 21-year-old is a hugely exciting prospect, that would add flair and creativity to the Gunners’ already exciting and youthful front line.

However, the biggest part of the Mudryk signing may be the impact it could have on 20-year-old sensation Bukayo Saka.

The England international is integral to the Gunners system but because of a lack of viable competition in his position is often over-played and overworked.

Mudryk arriving in North London could offer competition for the youngster, allowing him to get rest at certain times while also knowing there is a winger with the potential and ability to push him throughout the season.

Mikel Arteta and Edu would be wise to wrap up a deal for the Ukrainian wonderkid before the transfer window ends.
