Arsenal are reportedly considering a move for Ukrainian sensation Mykhaylo Mudryk as they look to bolster their squad.

The Gunners moved to do the majority of their transfer business early on in the window, acquiring the marquee signings of Jesus, Zinchenko and Vieira all before pre-season had concluded.

Since then, transfer news has been silent on the incoming front, with Edu and co. focusing on outgoings.

The most recent departure, club record signing Nicolas Pepe, has left Arteta’s side short of options on the right hand side. 

As a result, Mudryk is one of the options reportedly being considered.

At 21-years-old, he fits into the profile of player the board have been looking to recruit, players that can be moulded into the ‘Arsenal’ way.

Whilst the Shakhtar Donetsk man favours the left wing, he’s incredibly versatile, being more than comfortable on the right wing.

The ultra reliable Fabrizio Romano reports that the Gunners have asked for information on the winger:

“One of the names I wanted to mention is [Mykhaylo] Mudryk from Shakhtar.”

“Many clubs are keen on signing him - from England, the Bundesliga, from Italy too.

"Now could be an opportunity, so let’s see what Arsenal decide to do.”

However, the Ukrainian is one of many options on the list of potential incomings for Arsenal, with Arteta said to be infatuated by his primary target, Pedro Neto:

“Pedro Neto is one of the players that they love.

"Edu really appreciates the player & the same for Mikel Arteta.

“They consider Neto as the perfect player for them but Wolves want more than £50m, so it is a complicated deal for them.”

With just a few days left in the window, time is quickly running out for the Gunners to improve their squad.

In a season with a heavily congested fixture schedule, a winger is a necessity, especially if those at London Colney wish to achieve Champions League football next season.

Arsenal are also still believed to be in the market for a central-midfielder, but links have died down in the past weeks.
