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.

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.

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