Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has, on Saturday, responded to questions on the possibility of Mykhailo Mudryk making the move to the club.
Recent weeks, of course, have seen wide-man Mudryk hotly tipped for a move to the Emirates during the January transfer window.
This comes as the Gunners go in search of much-needed squad depth, amid efforts to keep alive what has proven a surprise challenge for the Premier League title across the first half of the campaign.
Evidently of the opinion that the club’s options out wide are lacking, Mudryk, capable of lining out on either flank, has therefore been identified as a priority target.
To this point, though, Edu Gaspar and co. have been left largely frustrated by the mammoth demands of their counterparts at the Olympiyskiy, in holding Arsenal’s interest at bay.
Speaking to the media on Saturday evening, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of Mudryk’s potential arrival was put to Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal’s boss, though, was unsurprisingly keen to keep his cards close to his chest.
After first explaining that there are ‘no updates’ on the situation, Arteta went on to add:
“At the end of the day, players decide where they want to play.”
