A couple of Italian clubs were linked to Mykhailo Mudryk, but it seems more and more likely that the Ukrainian will end up in the Premier League.
Arsenal have made a new important offer for the 22-year-old winger, according to journalist Mirko Di Natale, after talk of the fact that the Gunners have been pegged back in their approaches for the player.
Di Natale tells Get Italian Football News: “The two clubs are still negotiating. To definitely convince Shakhtar, Arsenal will have to make a very high offer on bonuses.”
Di Natale adds that the clubs are now discussing the bonuses part and they are a crucial part of the ongoing negotiations. Shakhtar still want €100 million, like Sporting Director Darijo Srna already said and the bonuses could help Arsenal come close to that figure.
Juventus has been one of the Serie A sides linked intensively to Mudryk, but they seem out of the race, especially because of Shakhtar’s valuation. The Ukrainian has made his intentions to join Arsenal known through some Instagram stories, most recently with a praying emoji, probably referring to the how he hopes that Arsenal’s latest bid will be accepted.
The winger has scored 10 goals and gave 8 assists in 18 appearences and clearly wants to make the next step.
