Chelsea plans to meet with Shakhtar Donetsk officials this week in London to talk about a possible deal for Mykhailo Mudryk. Arsenal has also had talks about the Ukrainian winger, and Chelsea is in talks with Benfica to sign World Cup winner Enzo Fernandez in January.
Chelsea is thinking about making an offer for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhailo Mudryk, even though Arsenal is “growing optimistic” that they will reach a deal for the player.
This week, there are plans to talk with Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk.
Todd Boehly, who owns Chelsea, is in London right now, and people from Shakhtar will be there soon.
This week, Sky Sports News said that Arsenal and Mudryk will reach a deal. Arsenal and Shakhtar are still talking about how much the fee will be and how it will be paid.
One source told Sky Sports News that Arsenal is willing to pay closer to what Shakhtar wants, which is £85 million. There isn’t yet a deal, but Arsenal is working hard to find a middle ground.
Sources close to the deal think that the clubs will “find a solution.” The 21-year-old player wants to move, and personal terms aren’t expected to be a problem.
Sky Sports News also said last week that Shakhtar thinks Mudryk, who has only played for his country eight times, is one of the best five wingers in the world.
