Arsenal have recently been credited with interest in Shakhtar Donetsk’s Mykhaylo Mudryk, a 21-year-old winger who predominantly plays on the left attacking flank. And speaking to Italian publication Calciomercato, Carlo Nicolini, the deputy of the sporting director of the Ukrainian club, has confirmed there has been concrete interest from the Gunners, as well as Manchester City.

Mudryk is quickly becoming one of the most coveted young players in Europe, and it is believed that his value in the eyes of Shakhtar now exceeds the amount Manchester United paid to sign Antony from Ajax near the end of the summer transfer window.

Who knew the passing of the Queen could have such a knock-on effect in the world of football?

This week, Arsenal were supposed to be preparing for a showdown with Manchester City in a 1st vs 2nd battle. Instead, though, due to their Europa League game against PSV Eindhoven being postponed a few weeks back, they’ll be catching up with that fixture instead.

In addition to giving Arsenal a chance to stretch their legs even further in the Europa League, we also think this benefits them in the title race.

Arsenal paid around £45 million to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City this summer, and while the Gunners’ need for a player of such characteristics and class was utterly obvious to everyone, some have questioned the player’s reasons for leaving the Premier League champions, where trophies are practically a certainty each season, for a rebuilding side. Jesus himself answered those questions in a recent interview with ESPN Brasil.

“The thing was the way [Guardiola] understands football and what he wanted,” the striker said.

It’s always been important for Arsenal to have a strong summer transfer window this year and to kick things off, as per Fabrizio Romano, the club has reached a full verbal agreement with Manchester City over the potential signing of Gabriel Jesus.

The reported fee is said to be £45 million and with the departure of both Aubameyang and Lacazette in recent times, this news is welcomed.

The 25-year-old has, in many ways, exceeded expectations at the Etihad despite some being led to believe that he’s been performing below his best.

Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, according to Gary Jacob of The Times.

With Alexandre Lacazette already a confirmed signing for former club Olympique Lyon and Eddie Nketiah still in talks over a new contract, the Gunners obviously need to sign a striker this summer, preferably one with plenty of Premier League experience who can take up the starting role upfront straight away. While other names have been mentioned in that aspect, Jesus has been their primary target for a long time now, and it seems the Brazilian is keen to work with Mikel Arteta again after the current Arsenal boss spent three years as Pep Guardiola’s assistant at the Etihad.

Alexandre Lacazette has left Arsenal and has been confirmed as an Olympique Lyon player again. His departure follows fast in the wake of that of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona in January, and Arsenal have found themselves desperately short of strikers, despite Eddie Nketiah reportedly changing his mind about leaving and being close to signing a new contract.

Naturally, the club have turned to the transfer market in order to sort the issue out, and here’s what the Evening Standard are reporting about that mission.

Arsenal given Zinchenko boost as Manchester City close in on left-back signing 0

Reported Arsenal target Oleksandr Zinchenko has mostly been filling in at left-back for Manchester City since he returned to the Etihad from his loan spell with PSV Eindhoven in 2017, with Benjamin Mendy, Pep Guardiola’s only designated option for a long time now, first hampered by frequent injuries and now suspended indefinitely due to accusations of numerous counts of rape. His proposed arrival to the Emirates would surely come in very handy with that in mind as Kieran Tierney has injury issues of his own and manager Mikel Arteta apparently not happy with what he’s seen from Nuno Tavares so far.
