Chelsea fans slam Todd Boehly for ‘absurd’ Mykhaylo Mudryk transfer as three deals ignored | Football | Sport
Chelsea’s move for Mykhaylo Mudryk does not have the backing of all supporters with some arguing that Todd Boehly should have other priorities. The Ukrainian winger is set to make the move to Stamford Bridge after the Blues hijacked Arsenal’s interest in the player however the club are reasonably well stocked in his position with some fans arguing central midfield, right-back and striker are more pressing issues.
Mudryk is set to be announced as a Chelsea player in the coming days after the club agreed an £88million deal with Shakhtar Donetsk. It had appeared that the player was destined for a move to Arsenal instead however the Gunners’ proposal stalled on the final details allowing the Blues to sweep in and take him from under Mikel Arteta’s nose.
While many fans are excited by the signing, especially given the reaction from supporters of their London rivals, not all are in agreement. Some believe that the squad has other issues to sort out first, namely in central midfield, right-back and upfront, taking to Twitter to voice their opinions.

There have been efforts to add a right-back with Celtic star and Croatia international Josip Juranovic and Inter Milan’s Denzel Dumfries tipped to make moves to Stamford Bridge while there has also been additions up front with the arrival of David Datro Fofana.
The transfer window is still only halfway through and it would be no surprise if Chelsea dove back into the market to make big signs with latest reports claiming Mudryk will be followed through the door at Stamford Bridge by ‘at least two more’ players.
