Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta stated in regard to the Mykhailo Mudryk transfer debates that he “never speaks about players who are not with us”.
Shakhtar’s winger Mudryk has been linked to an Arsenal move for some time. On Monday, Fabrizio Romano reported that the Gunners made an official proposal to the Ukrainian club, offering €40m plus €20m add-ons for the 21-year-old.
After Arsenal’s 3-1 victory against West Ham Arteta was asked about the potential transfer of Mudryk.
“You know that I never speak about players who are not with us, but I understand that you have to ask me the question. We said that we will try and find ways to strengthen the team [if] we find the right players and that’s what I can say,” he responded.
During Monday’s game, Mudryk published an Instagram story of him watching it.
When asked about that, Arteta replied: “The good thing with England is that you don’t have many other matches in other countries at Christmas, so hopefully a lot of people watched our game and we gave them a good show.”
