Mykhaylo Mudryk has been dropping all sorts of hints ahead of a potential move to Arsenal this month, and the Ukrainian has done it again now.

It’s clear that the 21-year-old is Mikel Arteta and Edu’s priority target this month. Arsenal have been in constant talks with Shakhtar Donetsk over a move, but the Ukrainian giants are standing firm over their €100 million (£88.5m) demand. That’s why a deal hasn’t been done yet. (Fabrizio Romano)

Mudryk, however, is desperate to join us.

Mykhaylo Mudryk posts picture of himself in an Arsenal shirt

Mudryk has been teasing Arsenal supporters for months now.

The Ukrainian has publicly claimed that he cannot say no to a move to the Emirates, while he has also posted pictures of himself watching some of Arsenal’s recent Premier League games.

To add to the above and many other things, the 21-year-old has now dropped another big hint.

Mudryk shared a picture of his cat on Instagram Stories today. The photo looks very innocent at first, but there is a television in the background, and eagle-eyed Arsenal fans can see the 21-year-old wearing an Arsenal shirt on the screen.

If that isn’t a come-and-get-me plea, we don’t know what is.

The Insider’s View:

The longer a transfer saga usually drags on, the more unlikely it is that it will happen. However, in Mudryk’s case, we have a feeling that Arsenal and Shakhtar will reach an agreement sooner or later.

£88.5 million for a player who has played just 44 senior games for Shakhtar is an outrageous demand, but because of clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and even Arsenal spending crazy money on players like Antony, Jack Grealish, Romelu Lukaku and Nicolas Pepe, the market has clearly become inflated.

Shakhtar are being smart here and they have every right to demand whatever they want for their star player.

If Edu can get them to agree to a much lower fee, he’ll have done an amazing job in this window.
