Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a last-gasp move for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mychajlo Mudryk, who is also being chased by Everton in advance of Thursday’s transfer deadline.
The Gunners have already managed to improve their squad with a handful of exciting summer additions but it seems as though Mikel Arteta is still in the market for additional reinforcements before the window finally closes
Arsenal are believed to be on the lookout for a new winger after missing out on the signing of former Leeds United man Raphinha, who opted to snub a number of Premier League suitors in order to join Barcelona earlier this summer.
Those in power at the Emirates Stadium have been taking steps to scope out potential targets over the last few days, with Mudryk among the players to have been considered, according to Fabrizio Romano.
is claimed that Arsenal have ‘explored conditions’ of a possible deal for Mudryk but are yet to establish contact with Shakhtar, the club at which he remains tied down until the summer of 2026.
The Ukrainian heavyweights are said to have already turned down an offer in the region of £25million from Everton, who are one of several clubs looking to rival Arsenal for Mudryk’s signature over the next few days.
The Gunners are believed to be prioritising a move for Wolves winger Pedro Neto, with Arteta having earmarked the 22-year-old as a top target in advance of this week’s impending deadline.
However, negotiations are reportedly proving to be complicated and it remains to be seen whether Arsenal will switch their focus to Mudryk at some point before the summer window slams
