Arsenal stumbled to a 2-0 defeat against PSV Eindhoven at the Philips Stadion on Thursday in the UEFA Europa League. The result ended manager Mikel Arteta’s 100% record in Europe this season.
Meanwhile, the Gunners have to pay more than €100 million to secure the signature of a Shakhtar Donetsk winger. Elsewhere, acclaimed transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has said that the north London side are not planning to move for a Palmeiras midfielder in January.
Arsenal will have to break the bank to secure the services of Mykhaylo Mudryk, according to Shakhtar Donetsk director Carlo Nicolini. The Ukrainian winger has earned rave reviews with his recent performances and is a target for the Gunners in January.
However, speaking to Calciomercato, as cited by Caught Offside, Nicolini said that Mudryk would cost above €100 million.
“Is €40m enough to buy him? We do not speak to these figures. Not even for €50m; we don’t even call the president to communicate the offer. We value Mudryk more than Antony of Manchester United, who cost €100m,” said Nicolini.
