Mykhailo Mudryk ‘set for baptism of fire against Man Utd with Arsenal confident of completing £80m transfer’
ARSENAL are “confident of landing Mykhailo Mudryk in time” to face Manchester United next weekend.
The winger has been tipped for a move to England and is the No.1 transfer target for the Premier League leaders.
The Gunners have had two bids rejected already for the 22-year-old by Shakhtar Donetsk.
A third offer worth around £62million plus add-ons was being lodged.
However, Shakhtar wanted a larger fee up front for their star, now the North London club are prepared to break the bank with a club record £84m bid.
Mudryk is currently in Turkey with his teammates for a warm weather training camp during the winter break.
And despite Shakhtar wanting a larger fee up front for their star, “there is an acceptance” a deal will be concluded soon.
Now The Times are claiming that Mikel Arteta’s team firmly believe they will have the Ukrainian international on-board for their crunch clash with United at the Emirates on Sunday 22 January.
Mudryk and his representatives have already agreed a five-year contract with Arsenal.
And he has broken his silence over a transfer to Arsenal.
After news of a fresh approach broke, Mudryk took to Instagram and posted a praying emoji on his story.
