Arsenal, the Premier League leaders, have made a revised offer to sign Mykhailo Mudryk, a talented winger from Shakhtar Donetsk, worth up to £62 million, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The Ukrainian club is seeking a higher guaranteed fee upfront, having rejected Arsenal’s initial offer of £35 million plus £17 million in add-ons. Negotiations are ongoing, with Arsenal eager to strengthen their attack to support their title bid.

Mudryk’s potential signing would be an outstanding boost to Arsenal’s squad, providing additional attacking options and depth to their lineup.

The 21-year-old winger has impressed in the Ukrainian Premier League, showcasing his pace, skill, and goal-scoring ability. His addition would enhance Arsenal’s chances of maintaining their lead in the Premier League and making a strong push for the title.

Meanwhile, Arsenal is also exploring a potential deal for Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix, but the Spanish club’s loan demand of £13.25 million is a serious hurdle.

Additionally, Felix’s wage requirements of £5.3 million until the end of the season would bring the total cost of the deal to nearly £20 million, a figure that may be too high for Arsenal and Chelsea, another interested party.

Chelsea has also shown interest in Mudryk as part of their focus on young talent. However, Arsenal remains the frontrunner to sign the Ukrainian winger, who has hinted at a potential move to north London through a recent Instagram post.

With Arsenal facing Newcastle United in a crucial match on Tuesday, the club is eager to bolster their squad to maintain their title push. The potential signing of Mudryk would be a remarkable statement of intent from Arsenal, demonstrating their commitment to strengthening their squad and competing for top honors.
