Arsenal have been linked to Mykhylo Mudryk for a long time now. Arteta believes he can use the winger in a central position in the team.
It won’t be a surprise to see more links to Mudryk. He surely will be a highlighted player throughout the January window.
With his stats of 10 goals and 8 assists in 18 games, he has surely grabbed the attention of many European giants. Despite all the interest, Arsenal seems to be the most suitable destination for the Ukrainian.
Arsenal planned to sign him in August but never made the deal official. They surely will be regretting to not sign him at that time.
Mudryk has seen a rapid increase in his value thanks to his tremendous performance in the champions league.
Although sources reported that Arsenal is on the verge of signing a 40 million deal. There is still the possibility of Shaktar holding for better offers.
Arteta got different plans for Mudryk
Mudyrk is known for his abilities playing on the left-wing side but joining Arsenal may result in a change in his position.
Arteta believes that Mudryk’s lightning pace can be useful elsewhere. It’s still unclear whether Arteta refers to the no 10 position or the Striker position.
He has only played once in the no10 position but Arteta surely believes that he has the ability to perform there.
Arteta feels that he can be developed into a more versatile player,”
said the reporter.
“At the moment he’s lightning quick, he’s got a good eye for goal, he weighs in with assists. he makes the pitch as big as possible, he starts on the left-hand side and he cuts in.”
“I think Mikel Arteta thinks that he can spend more time during games in central areas and, even under select game management situations, switch sides as well.“
