In his column for Caught Offside, Romano said there is nothing new in the series.

“Mykhaylo Mudryk’s story continues to make headlines, and many Arsenal fans have asked me for updates. I’m afraid I don’t know exactly when there will be news, that depends on the clubs; we will update when they come back with a new offer,” Romano said.

“Of course, Arsenal is still in contact with Shakhtar and they want to insist; Mudryk dreams of Premier League football and is waiting to see what happens. I think he is a fantastic talent with great potential, which is why Shakhtar are asking for big fees in the region of Antony and Jack Grealish,” Romano said.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry believes the Gunners will miss Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian will spend a long period on the sidelines after injuring his knee at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The 25-year-old has been a key figure at the Emirates since joining the club from Manchester City this summer.

Speaking recently, Henry said Jesus’ experience of winning the Premier League makes him indispensable to the Gunners.

“What I like again about what you are going to lose with Jesus is that he has won it. I came to this football club with a lot of people who had won it. You don’t have many people who have won the league here. Gabriel Jesus and Zinchenko did it,” Henry said.

“You can see that this is transmitted to the youngest members of the team, and that is what I love about Gabriel Jesus. When you hear him talk, he always says, ‘I think we can win the league,’ and that’s contagious.”
