Premier League leaders Arsenal have launched a £52.2million bid for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk.
Arsenal splashed over £100million on new signings in the summer, bringing in the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira.
With Mikel Arteta’s side surprisingly finding themselves in a title race, however, technical director Edu is eager to strengthen Arsenal’s squad even further.
SunSport exclusively revealed last month that Gunners chiefs are willing to inject £50m into the transfer kitty for the January transfer window.
Also SunSport reported that Ukrainian ace Mudryk, 21, is among the players on Arsenal’s mid-season wishlist.
And according to Italian reporter Mirko Di Natale, the Gunners have now made a formal bid.
Di Natale claims that Arsenal have made a £52.2m offer for the winger, with Shakhtar yet to respond.
Mudryk has excelled both domestically and in Europe this term.
He has scored eight goals and assisted a further seven in all competitions for his club.
Three of his goals have come in the Champions League – including one on British soil against Celtic.
He has also swiftly become a key man for his country, earning eight caps for Ukraine.
