According to CBS sports journalist, Newcastle’s target Mykhaylo Mudryk wants to join Arsenal instead of Magpies.
The reporter said that he is ready to make a move to the Premier League and wants to join Arsenal.
The journalist also said that Leicester City player, Youri Tielemans is also ready to join Arsenal.
The Athletic, earlier this month reported that Manchester City, PSG, Newcastle, and Arsenal are interested to sign Mudryk.
Mudryk prefers Arsenal over Newcastle
Jacob said to GiveMeSport:
“Newcastle are very much not the frontrunners for Mudryk, who has got his heart set on Arsenal, a bit like Tielemans has got his heart set on Arsenal. But, with both Tielemans and Mudryk, Arsenal simply haven’t bid at this point.”
According to Ukrainian journalist Viktor Vatsko, he has a £ 130 million release clause in his contract.
Arsenal surely cannot pay that much for a 21-year-old but Shakhtar surely can set a lower price for the player.
