Ian Wright discussed the potential need for Arsenal to make large financial investments this summer in order to retain their performance level during an episode of the Wrighty’s House Podcast. With his co-host, he talked about the team’s summer recruitment ambitions and whether or not Arsenal genuinely needed to spend a lot of money. They used the examples of Mykhaylo Mudryk and Joao Felix as players that cost a lot of money but wouldn’t have necessarily improved Arsenal. Wright elaborated on Mudryk, saying that, even if he had joined the squad in the January transfer window, he doesn’t believe the Ukrainian could have duplicated Leandro Trossard’s success at Arsenal. It’s important to note that Mudryk was associated with During this time, Arsenal.
What Trossard has accomplished, Mudryk couldn’t.
The Chelsea winger was mentioned by the pundit.
The co-host of Wright’s show remarked, “I don’t know if they have to (spend a lot), they missed out on Joao Felix and he’s not doing that well at Chelsea, and they didn’t get Mudryk and it might have been the greatest thing that happened to them.
Wright remarked, “Mudryk wouldn’t have done what Trossard has done what Trossard has been doing up to this point, regardless of what anyone thinks, and we’ve seen it up to this point.
“Mudryk, for his own reason, I do feel terrible for him. I don’t know if there was ever a football player in history who had to have a transfer of that kind of money with so much politicalness surrounding him.
Trossard has been outstanding, and Wright is true because Mudryk couldn’t have helped Arsenal the way that Trossard has. Mudryk, though, is not ashamed of that. Since joining Arsenal, Trossard has beyond everyone’s expectations and has excelled in practically every game. He recently broke a record against Fulham by dishing up three assists in the first half. Even though Trossard was chosen by Arsenal in place of Mudryk, it’s fair to argue that Arsenal made the right choice.
