Chelsea hijack Mykhaylo Mudryk to Arsenal transfer ‘as £88m bid ready’ to trump Gunners | Football | Sport

Chelsea officials have travelled to Poland in a desperate attempt to hijack Arsenal’s proposed January move for top target Mykhaylo Mudryk, according to reports. The Blues have been credited with a keen interest in signing Mudryk over the course of this month, although the 21-year-old has been widely expected to join Arsenal over the last few weeks.

The Gunners have reportedly agreed personal terms with Mudryk and have been in advanced negotiations with Shakhtar Donetsk over a transfer fee, which is believed to be in the region of £75million, over the last few weeks. However, it seems as though Chelsea are in no mood to give up the chase and still fancy their chances of beating Arsenal to Mudryk’s signature in the not-too-distant future.

Senior board members at Chelsea have jetted out to Poland in order to try and reach a verbal agreement with Shakhtar to snatch Mudryk from under the noses of Arsenal, according to Fabrizio Romano.
