Arsenal tipped to spend £57m to sign ‘unstoppable’ player in January

Arsenal could be set to spend big in the upcoming January transfer window.


The player who Arsenal are seemingly targeting is Mykhalo Mudryk of Shakhtar.

Mykhaylo Mudryk was of interest to Arsenal in the summer transfer window, with the Gunners eyeing reinforcements out wide following the loan of Nicola Pepe to Nice.

Arsenal currently have just Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka as natural wide options, though Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Jesus can also operate on the flank if needed.

And after Arsenal could not land Mudryk in the summer, it looks as though the Gunners will not have to pay even more if they want to sign the winger.

Speaking to Give Me Sport of Arsenal’s interest in the wide-man, Ben Jacobs said: “They’ve never had a history of paying above the odds and they’ve never had a history of panic buying, so it’s now about whether they can agree a fee with Shakhtar.

“Sources are saying privately that fee will be €60-65million [£52m-£57m] if Arsenal get their way at the top end.

“Arsenal’s starting point will be even lower than that as well and the way forward, as ever with these kinds of deals, will be around the structure.

“Arsenal are definitely not going to put down anywhere close to €100million [£87m], but what they might do is put down €50-60million [£43m-£52m] with some gettable add-ons and even potentially a sell-on percentage to Shakhtar should they eventually let him go elsewhere.”

Mudryk was previously branded as ‘unstoppable’ and will likely make an excellent addition to Arsenal’s attack.
