Piers Morgan blasts ‘weak’ Arsenal as Chelsea beat them to Mykhailo Mudryk signing and fears it could cost them the Premier League title

    Piers Morgan has hit out at Arsenal, the club he supports, brandishing them as ‘weak’ after missing out on top target Mykhailo Mudryk.

    After weeks of flirting with the Shakhtar Donetsk winger, Arsenal were pipped to the line by Chelsea, who agreed a deal with the Ukrainian side on Saturday.

    Chelsea then announced the signing of Mudryk on an eight-and-a-half year deal on Sunday, unveiling the player at Stamford Bridge during their Premier League clash at Crystal Palace.

    Reacting to the news of Chelsea getting Mudryk, Morgan expressed his annoyance at the Gunners’ failure to tie up a deal themselves.

    “I’m irrationally annoyed about this Mudryk fiasco,” Morgan wrote on Twitter.

    “If Arsenal want to win the League this season, we can’t faff around for weeks on key targets and then get outflanked/outbid at the last minute. Looks weak.

    “We must buy another top class striker asap.”

    Boss Mikel Arteta has no time to dwell on losing out on Mudryk as his side gears up for a pivotal run of fixtures starting with Sunday’s north London Derby.

    Even without injured striker Gabriel Jesus, the Gunners have continued their relentless form, picking up seven points form their three league games since the resumption of the Premier League.

    But Arteta’s face arguably the biggest test of their title credentials with the visit of in-form Manchester United next weekend followed by clashes with Everton and Brentford before Manchester City visit the Emirates Stadium on February 15.
