Arsenal submits Mykhaylo Mudryk opening bid, Fabrizio Romano

Arsenal submits Mykhaylo Mudryk opening bid understood to be €40m according to Fabrizio Romano.

Arsenal have submitted an opening offer for Mykhaylo Mudryk, but the bid falls short of Shakhtar Donetsk’s valuation of the winger.

As Mikel Arteta aims to increase his team’s goal threat throughout the second half of the season, the Gunners’ opening offer is believed to be an initial €40 million plus an additional €20 million in potential add-ons.

Following an outstanding debut in Ukraine, where he has 10 goals and eight assists in 18 games across all competitions this season, the 21-year-old has been linked with big teams around Europe.

Fabrizio Romano is reporting that the Ukrainian side wants ‘way more’ than Arsenal’s opening bid for their prized asset.

“Arsenal have now submitted a bid to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk. Understand it’s €40m plus €20m add-ons. Shakhtar want ‘way more’ than this to sell Mudryk. Talks will take place with the player’s agent to discuss about the deal. No issues on personal terms.”

Personal terms are not expected to be an issue for Mudryk, who is keen on a move to the Premier League leaders.

He discussed the prospect of leaving for a major European league earlier this season and criticized Shakhtar’s unrealistic valuation, with the club’s director, Darijo Srna, having hinted it would take a bid in excess of €100m.

“When I found out about my price, I wasn’t just surprised – I was shocked,” Mudryk told Sport Arena.

“I have a long-term contract with Shakhtar [set to expire in December 2026], I give all my strength and energy so that Shakhtar achieves maximum results… but every football player has a dream to play in a top club and in a top championship – I am no exception.

“But I am 100 percent sure that they are unlikely to buy a player from the championship of Ukraine for 100 million… I will not hide that I was very upset. The amount of 100 million puts a barrier for my transition to the top championship, which I so dreamed of. I can’t say that my dream was killed, but wounded – that’s for sure.”
