'It will be time' - Arsenal given fresh encouragement over Mykhailo Mudryk transfer

Shakhtar Donetsk's club chief has dropped a hint over a potential move for Arsenal transfer target Mykhaylo Mudryk.

Mudryk, 21, has caught the eye of many European clubs in the last few months but Arsenal appear to be leading the way to sign the young Ukrainian.

Mikel Arteta's men currently top the Premier League table and would ideally like to add depth in the January transfer window to continue their title charge.

Mudryk has scored three goals and contributed two assists in his six Champions League appearances this season.


"We'll see"

Donetsk's club chief Carlo Nicolini has discussed a potential move in January, telling TuttoJuve: "Now it will be time to get back in contact with the club, the agent and Mychajlo to see if anyone will start a negotiation.

"He's a great professional, he'll leave these voices to his agents. We'll see if anything happens or not."

While he hasn't specifically stated which club they will be in contact with, interviewer Mirko Di Natale confirmed on Twitter that it was Arsenal, claiming they have made a "significant offer".

Speaking after Arsenal's defeat to Brighton in the Carabao Cup earlier in the month, Arteta said: “That’s the squad that we have and we have to try to utilise the squad in the best possible way.

"We know where we are and we knew the moment we had certain injuries that the squad is already very, very short."
