Arsenal transfer target Mudryk 'likes' mocked up photo of himself behind bars as fans call for him to be 'freed' | The Sun

ARSENAL transfer target Mykhailo Mudryk 'liked' a mocked up photo of himself behind bars with fans calling for him to be 'freed' from Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Premier League leaders have been chasing the Ukraine wonderkid, 22, over the past month.

Arsenal even submitted an offer worth £62million, but it was well below the Ukrainian side's asking price.

Chelsea have also registered an interest in the Shakhtar winger in recent days.

However, Mudryk seems to be keeping a watchful eye over developments at Arsenal in particular.

Mudryk watched on an iPad as Mikel Arteta's men brushed West Ham aside on Boxing Day with a 3-1 win.

Ahead of Arsenal's New Year's Eve clash with Brighton, Mudryk expressed his admiration for Arteta and his former Shakhtar boss Roberto De Zerbi, who is now in charge on the South Coast.

De Zerbi then tipped Mudryk as a potential future Ballon d'Or winner.

And in his latest social media antics, Mudryk liked a mocked up post of him behind bars with the caption calling for him to be freed.

But it appears he has now unliked the post.

A third added: "Arsenal needs you, Arteta needs you, in Arsenal you can achieve your goal of becoming world best footballer. Trust the process please."

The Gunners are in need of attacking reinforcements following the serious injury to main striker Gabriel Jesus during the World Cup.

Their most recent outing, a 0-0 draw with Newcastle, was the first game in which they failed to score in the Premier League all season.
