Arsenal are reportedly working on a bid potentially worth over £50million for Shakhtar Donetsk sensation Mykhailo Mudryk.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with the 21-year-old winger – who has drawn comparisons to Neymar – since the summer; Shakhtar sporting director Carolo Nicolini recently confirmed (opens in a new tab) that the north London club had been “interested” in Mudryk, alongside Manchester City.
