ARSENAL are set to go back in for Mykhaylo Mudryk after being put off by Shakhtar Donetsk's asking price in the summer, according to reports.

The Gunners looked close to landing the winger in the weeks before the window shut.

Personal terms had reportedly been agreed as Mikel Arteta looked to secure a potential star of the future.

But the move never came about – and it seems price was an issue.

Fabrizio Romano suggested Shakhtar were asking for more money than Arsenal were willing to pay.

However, the transfer insider added the London club have not ended their pursuit.

Speaking about the Ukrainian player, he told CBS' Football Podcast: "I think in the future there is a chance for Arsenal, but not only Arsenal.

"In August, they had some conversations with the agents of Mudryk, but then, when they knew about the price tag, way more than €30m [£26m], they decided not to bid."

Mudryk is a rising star in Europe and showcased his talent to British audiences yesterday with a well-taken goal against Celtic.

The 21-year-old cancelled out an own goal which gave the Scottish side the lead as he got in behind full-back Josip Juranovic.

He then lifted his shot over Joe Hart to make it 1-1.

Mudryk also scored last week as the side from Ukraine destroyed RB Leipzig 4-1.

In a boost for Arsenal fans, the winger also admitted earlier this month that he "can't say no" if the club came in for him.
