Mykhailo Mudryk got Arsenal fans excited after sharing footage of him watching his potential new club’s Boxing Day win over West Ham.
The Shakhtar Donetsk winger has emerged as Mikel Arteta’s No.1 target for the January transfer window after a series of outstanding performances for the champions of Ukraine.
Reports earlier on Monday claimed that, after months of mounting speculation, that the Gunners had submitted their first formal offer for the 21-year-old.
Arsenal are keen to win the race for the Ukraine international and according to Sport Arena, the Gunners have submitted a ‘very worthy’ opening offer to Shakhtar.
The Athletic subsequently reported that Arsenal’s offer for Mudryk is worth €40 million (£35m) up front, plus an additional €25m (£22m) in add-ons.
Shakhtar are holding out for a larger offer but the player gave indication of his intentions by dropping a subtle hint on Instagram, sharing footage of Eddie Nketiah’s game-clinching goal.
