Arsenal ‘are on the verge’ of completing £40m signing


Arsenal are on the verge of signing Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk, according to reports.

The 21-year-old winger has been in sparkling form this season with six goals and seven assists, establishing himself as one of the best young attacking talents in Europe.

He is a player that Arsenal have been linked with in previous transfer windows and he has not shone away from admitting that he would be open to a move to the Emirates in the coming weeks

It has been claimed in recent media outlets that Donetsk were asking for close to £88 million for their star man – and would not accept anything lower.

But according to the Mirror, Shakhtar have privately reduced their asking price and are now willing to accept a deal closer to £40m.
