“Let’s recruit Japanese Mitoma”… ‘Japanese player dark history’ Arsenal move?

Arsenal fans revealed that they want Japan’s Kaoru Mitoma instead of the overpriced Ukrainian star. 

British media Express reported on the 6th (Korean time) that “Arsenal fans want another player than Mikhailo Mudrik.” 

Arsenal are in first place in the English Premier League for the 2022/23 season.

Arsenal, which was not considered a candidate for the championship until the start of the season, has maintained its leading position since the last 3 rounds, with all players active under the direction of coach Mikel Arteta. 

Arsenal unexpectedly joined the race for the championship, but it seems that they do not want to miss the opportunity. This winter, he expressed his will to connect with several strikers and continue the competition by reinforcing his shortcomings. One of them is Shakhtar’s youngster Mikhailo Mudrik. 

Mudriq is a player whose strength is his ability to break through with quick feet and kick with both feet on the side of Shakhtar. He also complies with attack point production. He was highly praised for playing not only in league matches this season, but also in the UEFA Champions League. 

Arsenal are currently negotiating with Shakhtar for the signing of Mudrik, but they are having trouble reaching an agreement. 

Reporter David Ornstein of The Athletic, a British media outlet, said on his social media on the 6th, “Arsenal have had two offers for Mudriq rejected by Shakhtar, but there is still great interest. Talks between the two teams continue, and Arsenal are optimistic about the signing.” 

“Shakhtar wants 100 million euros (approximately 133 billion won), and the demand is unchanged. With Chelsea participating, the match for Moudrik can continue for a few more weeks and can be decided at the last minute of the transfer market.” 

As negotiations dragged on due to Shakhtar’s request for an excessively high transfer fee, an opinion emerged among Arsenal fans who wanted quick reinforcement to turn their attention to proven resources within the league. 스포츠토토

The Express said, “Arsenal are aiming for Mudrik, but they have not yet been able to match the amount of Shakhtar. This is because his price is excessively high at around 85 million pounds (about 128 billion won). Arsenal fans want to turn their attention to Mitoma instead of Moudrik in this situation.” 

Mitoma is a winger for Brighton and has been playing in the Premier League this season. He only appeared as a substitute at the beginning of the season, but showed impressive performance even in a short time and quickly jumped to the starting lineup. After the World Cup break, he is perfectly positioned as a key player and leads Brighton’s attack. 

After adapting to the Premier League, Mitoma lost 2-4 in the 18th round of the Premier League against Arsenal on the 1st, but scored a chase goal at the end of the game, chilling Arsenal fans.

Previously, Arsenal had recruited Japanese players several times, such as Junichi Inamoto (2001-2002), Ryo Miyaichi (2011-2015), and Takuma Asano (2016-2019), but failed to utilize them properly and released them all.

In such a situation, the possibility of joining Mitoma is rising.

In addition to Moudrik and Mitoma, Arsenal is known to be active in leasing Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix, so it is expected that fans will have a lot of fun with what reinforcements Arsenal will continue to compete for in the transfer market this winter.
