Arsenal hit a snag in their pursuit of Mudryk as they are told to pay a fee ‘closer to Grealish than Antony’

Shakhtar’s vice-director tells the Gunners to pay somewhere around £100million to sign the in-demand winger.

Shatkhtar Dontesk’ vice-president, Carlo Nicolini says that the Gunners must pay some around a £100million to sign Mkhaylo Mudryk.

The Gunners have already submitted their first offer which is in the region of £60 million but apparently that is not enough to sign Mudryk.

The 21-year-old has already scored 3 goals and recorded two assists in this season’s Champions League. Moreover, he is Shakhtar’s top scorer in the domestic league with seven goals and seven assists.


has confessed his love for the Gunners time and time again in interviews and Arteta’s side is definitely in need of reinforcements since their star striker Gabriel Jesus will be out for some time after getting a surgery on his knees

Some had reported that the final fee that Shakhtar would’ve been ok with is the fee United paid Ajax for Antony (£82million), but the Shakhtar vice director has denied those rumors, claiming that a fee closer to Grealish’s move to City (£100million) is what gets the job done.

"I confirm that


is one of the most active teams,"

Nicolini told Calcio Mercato. 

"When there is an interested company, we ask: 'Make a proposal and when we have it in hand we start to negotiate.'

"As we have always said, to deal with Mudryk, you need an important offer. Arsenal may have made such an offer, but there is negotiation.

"Players were sold that the clubs wanted to sell and that we consider no stronger than Mudryk with a valuation of around £100million, so we consider no less than £60million.

"I am not the one to make the figure, I have no particular indications from the company, but the director has said that we need an important offer closer to Grealish than for Antony. If the cash figure is £40million, it is not even taken into account."
