Chelsea to hijack Arsenal deal for Mykhaylo Mudryk

Mudryk on Chelsea radar

Chelsea could hijack Arsenal's pursuit of Mykhaylo Mudryk, according to The Guardian.

The west London giants recently bolstered their attack with the signing of Molde striker David Fofana.

They are now eyeing a new winger and reports claim that the club have entered the hunt for Mudryk.

The Ukrainian is currently a top target for the Gunners, but they are yet to meet Shakhtar Donetsk price tag.

Their opening bid of €65m has fallen short of the €100m and negotiations are said to be continuing for now.

However, Chelsea have now been touted to hijack the transfer by making a more lucrative bid for the player.

The Blues are ready to offer close to Shakhtar's valuation and it remains to be seen whether they can lure him.

Mudryk has been angling for a move to the Gunners and he has been posting screenshots watching them in action.

He has already agreed personal terms with them and could snub a transfer to Chelsea unless the Gunners give up.
