Mudryk was the No1 priority for Arsenal this month.

But the Gunners pulled out of a transfer when Shakhtar started driving the price higher amid interest from Chelsea.

Personal terms with Mudryk had already been agreed, although he will now earn more than double what Arsenal were offering him.

Signing a winger remains a priority for Mikel Arteta, and here SunSport run through five players he could turn to after missing out on Mudryk.

Raphinha

Reports in Spain claim the Gunners have already reignited their interest in Raphinha, having been linked with the Brazilian in the summer.

In the end he joined Barcelona from Leeds in a deal worth £57m.

But Arsenal have allegedly enquired about Raphinha’s availability to the cash-strapped Catalans.

Wilfried Zaha

Crystal Palace talisman Wilfried Zaha is out of contract at the end of the current season.

The 30-year-old has been linked with Arsenal in the past, and is available on a free transfer if he does not extend his deal at Selhurst Park.

Zaha has netted six goals and provided two assists in 17 Premier League games for Palace this season.
