Arsenal missed out on signing Mykhailo Mudry this January.
The Ukrainian winger was interested in moving to the Emirates but instead opted to move to Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal decided to not value Shakhtar Donetsk’s asking price for the 22-year-old and went on to sign Leonardo Trossard from Brighton.
The 22-year-old has impressive on his Premier League debut against Liverpool last week.
Club legend Ian Wright believes the winger shouldn’t be criticised for accepting a high-paying offer at Chelsea.
He told the Arsecast podcast: ‘With Mudryk I was very excited about that. With the money it started to get into the realm where it could knock us off our axes in terms of what we’re trying to do.
‘He looks like the kind of guy that would fit into our group. I was a bit disappointed but not disappointed that Arsenal went ‘that’s fine’.
‘He’s gone there for money, I’m not going to blame him because he’s someone who has had a lot more going on around him personally and in his life.’
