Arsenal target spotted in Dubai during Gunners’ training camp

The current location of known Arsenal target Mykhailo Mudryk has given rise to widespread chatter across social media late on Thursday.

The name of wide-man Mudryk, of course, has taken its place front and centre in the headlines across the continent over the course of the season to date.

This comes with the 21-year-old, hotly tipped for a move to both the Premier League and Serie A during the summer, having begun to showcase his immense talents on European football’s biggest stage.

Across appearances in all six of Shakhtar Donetsk’s Champions League group stage outings, Mudryk directly contributed to five goals.

The latest of these came back in October, courtesy of a spectacular last-gasp equaliser at Celtic Park:

In turn, it has come as little surprise to hear of interest in Mudryk’s signature beginning to mount once more, ahead of the January transfer window swinging open.

To this point, it is Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal who have been most widely tipped to land the Ukrainian, with Mudryk himself also understood to be keen on a move to north London.

And now, as alluded to above, chatter surrounding the possibility of such a deal coming to fruition has mounted ever further.

This comes owing to Mudryk’s latest activity whilst on vacation.

Afforded some well-earned time off amidst the ongoing World Cup showpiece in Qatar, the Shakhtar talent opted to travel to Dubai.

Coincidentally, or perhaps not, this also happens to be where Mikel Arteta and the Arsenal squad are currently enjoying a warm-weather training camp.

Speculation, as a result, has ramped up across the Gunners fanbase that a deal for a player described as the club’s ‘no.1′ January target could be in the offing.
