    Chelsea chiefs have flown to Poland in order to launch a late bid to hijack Mykhailo Mudryk’s much anticipated transfer to Arsenal.

    Reports earlier on Saturday claimed Arsenal’s sporting director, Edu, had also jetted in to Poland to iron out the finer details of the Ukraine international’s move to north London.

    Chelsea’s interest in Mudryk was understood to have been ‘exploratory’ with the club keen to play down their interest in the 22-year-old, despite the presence of Shakhtar Donetsk’s technical director, Darijo Srna, at Stamford Bridge for last week’s Premier League game against Manchester City.

    Arsenal have already seen two bids rejected for the highly-rated winger who has dropped regular hints on social media that his preference would be a move to the Premier League leaders.

    The Gunners’ most recent offer worth £62m before add-ons, which would take the deal closer to £70m, was thought to be enough to conclude a lengthy saga with Mikel Arteta hopeful Mudryk would be able to make his debut against Manchester United next week.

    Chelsea, however, according to Fabrizio Romano, are looking to blow Arsenal out of the water and are prepared to submit a €100m bid that would match Shakhtar’s valuation.
