Things could be about to get very very spicy…
Fabrizio Romano has just Tweeted that members of Chelsea’s board are in Poland, where Shakhtar Donetsk are training, trying to hijack Arsenal’s bid for young talent Mikhailo Mudryk.
The winger has long been linked with the Gunners, and according to Romano they have made 3 bids without agreeing a deal with the Ukrainian side.

Chelsea are going to have to do something big to take the lead – and it sounds like that’s possible. The Blues are apparently bringing an “official bid” which will be “close to €100m”.
That will likely be enough to get the green light from his club – but Mudryk will now have a big decision to make.
Arsenal has seemed like his dream move all along – will he really give up on that for bigger wages at Chelsea?
Whatever happens, we’re in for a thrilling few days it seems.
