Mikel Arteta is eager to bolster his squad in the hope of continuing the title charge.

The Arsenal boss is claimed to be prioritising signing a new winger and a new midfielder.

And according to The Daily Mail, he wants to sign both Mudryk and Felix.

The Gunners have been pushing to sign Mudryk since last summer, but they are yet to strike an agreement with Shakhtar Donetsk.

Shakhtar chiefs have made it clear that they will not accept anything less than £85million for their star man, while Arsenal are currently only willing to offer around £66m.

Arsenal have already had two bids for Mudryk rejected, with the latest understood to be worth £62m.

But they now face more pressure to get the deal done as Chelsea have expressed a strong interest in signing the Ukrainian winger.

Blues boss Todd Boehly has made it clear that he is more than willing to meet Shakhtar’s asking price as long as Mudryk confirms his desire to switch to Stamford Bridge.


However, the 22-year-old is understood to be eager to join Arsenal instead.

While the Gunners remain in talks with Shakhtar Donetsk over a deal for Mudryk, they are now stepping up their pursuit of Atletico Madrid ace Felix.

The attacking midfielder, 23, recently admitted that he wants to LEAVE the Metropolitano Stadium.

And he is now attempting to force a move away from Spain.

Atletico are willing to let him leave on loan until the end of the season, but only if a £16m fee is agreed.

Arsenal have reportedly held talks with the La Liga giants this week to try and lower the loan fee.

Felix joined Atletico Madrid in a huge £113m transfer three-and-a-half years ago.

He has scored 34 goals in 130 games for the Spanish side.
