What the papers say
The Sun reports Chelsea will make a last-minute attempt to sign Arsenal target, 21-year-old Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhailo Mudryk. The bold attempt at a hijack comes despite the fact the Gunners have reported already agreed on personal terms with Mudryk.
The Gunners will also potentially miss out on 21-year-old Benfica midfielder Enzo Fernandez, according to the Telegraph. The paper writes Chelsea are not keen on the £205.8 million release clause in Fernandez’s contract, while Benfica want the fee in full.
