Chelsea winger Mykhaylo Mudryk has revealed that he really likes Arsenal star Oleksandr Zinchenko and often jokes with him about what colour London is.

The former Shakhtar Donetsk man was heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in the January transfer window. A move even looked imminent at one point, but Arsenal were beaten in the end.

Chelsea swooped in at the last minute and lured Mudryk away, and the Ukrainian now thinks London is blue. Who wants to tell him how wrong he is?

Why Pele Is Overrated.

Mykhaylo Mudryk says he really likes Arsenal star Oleksandr Zinchenko

Mudryk was desperate to join Arsenal, and he was very vocal about it.

The talented winger posted numerous hints about his desire to join the Gunners on social media. He even publicly claimed that he can’t turn Arsenal down if we moved in for him.

In the end, however, Mudryk went and joined Chelsea for whatever reason, and he says jokes between him and 26-year-old Zinchenko about the colour of London are very common every time they meet.

The Chelsea man told Sky Sports: “He (Zinchenko) helped me a lot, I like him so much.

“We often joke about Arsenal, Chelsea and what colour is London? I like this gut. He’s a very funny, very kind guy. I spend some time with him and always in a positive vibe.”

When asked what colour London is, Mudryk said: “Blue!”

The Insider’s View:

Arsenal would’ve been a great club for Mudryk, but no Gooner is really too upset about missing out on him now.

After Chelsea lured the Ukrainian away to Stamford Bridge in January, Arsenal wisely used the same money to sign three new players – Leandro Trossard, Jakub Kiwior and Jorginho.

Trosard and Jorginho have both had a massive impact already, while Kiwior is a huge talent who will surely come good for us in the coming months and years.

As for Mudryk and what colour London is, just look at the Premier League table.
