Will Arsenal Agree Mykhailo Mudryk Deal, After Atletico Felix loan talk

Mudryk and Felix

Arsenal are still in talks with Shakhtar Donetsk about signing Mykhailo Mudryk; one source told Sky Sports News that the Gunners are willing to pay a fee closer to Shakhtar’s valuation; and talks between Arsenal and Atletico Madrid about loan signing of forward Joao Felix are ongoing.

There is growing resilience that Arsenal will sign Shakhtar Donetsk’s Mykhailo Mudryk on loan, while the Gunners are also in talks with Atletico Madrid about signing Joao Felix on loan.

Arsenal and Shakhtar are still discussing the size of the fee and the payment structure for Mudryk.

Arsenal is willing to pay a fee closer to Shakhtar’s £85 million valuation. Although no agreement has been reached, Arsenal is working hard to find a solution.

According to sources close to the situation, the clubs will “find a solution,” with the 21-year-old wanting to move and personal terms not expected to be an issue.

According to close source, Shakhtar regard Mudryk, who has only played eight times for his country and has yet to score an international goal, as one of the top five wingers in the world.

Shakhtar believes he is better than Manchester United’s Antony, who cost £86 million from Ajax in the summer, and is using that as a benchmark in negotiations.

Shakhtar CEO Sergei Palkin confirmed last week that the club had received offers for Mudryk, including one from Arsenal, but that they were “not the ones we would like to see” for a deal to be completed.

Arsenal is also in talks with Atletico Madrid about loaning Felix to them.

The Spanish club is thought to want around £19 million for a six-month loan deal that includes wages, but Arsenal believes this is too much and will only pursue a move if the figures are correct.

A loan move for the 23-year-old, who is under contract with Atletico until the summer of 2026, benefits both clubs.

Diego Simeone’s side want to keep his market value for a possible summer sale, while Arsenal are looking for a replacement for the injured Gabriel Jesus, who is expected to return later this season.
