Arsenal are currently holding talks with Shakhtar Donetsk about the sale of Mykhaylo Mudryk.
The Ukrainian winger, who is just 22, is a priority target for the Gunners this winter.
As Mikel Arteta hopes to improve the depth of his Premier League table topping squad, Mudryk has emerged as the no.1 target.
According to Sport Arena, the two clubs are now discussing a fee, with an agreement believed to be inch away.
Chelsea are also hoping on hijacking the deal through their financial strength.
However, the player may have set his heart on moving to the Emirates Stadium club.
