VIDEO: Arteta provides latest update on Mudryk in his interview today ahead of Brighton clash
Mikel Arteta refused to comment on Arsenal’s bid for Mykhailo Mudryk – but admitted Arsenal were in the process of trying to strengthen their squad.
The Gunners made their first move for the Shakhtar Donetsk winger on Monday, tabling a bid of around £55 million including add-ons. Shakhtar are expected to reject the opening offer, but the Gunners are keen to wrap up a deal for the 21-year-old early in the January transfer window.
When asked if he was happy that the winger was taking an interest in the game, Arteta said: “The good thing with England is that you don’t have many other matches in other countries at Christmas so hopefully a lot of people watched our game and we gave them a good show.”
🗣 "I cannot talk about players that is not Arsenal."
