A surprise move for Dusan Vlahovic has been raised in some parts after Mikel Arteta lost out in a battle for the Serbian striker with Juventus earlier in the year.
Mykhaylo Mudryk is another former target of Arsenal’s and the Shakhtar Donetsk winger has spoken out on the interest in his services during the summer.

Reports in Italy had suggested that Arteta wanted to make a renewed bid for Vlahovic in his relentless pursuit of adding goals to his team - the Juventus ace currently enduring a relatively difficult run this season.
But Juve have no intention of selling and the player does not want to move at this stage, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Furthermore, there is said to have been no contact between the clubs.
Arsenal’s interest in young winger Mudryk failed to get off the ground over the summer.
Donetsk wanted in the region of £39million for a player who has now opened the door to a move to England, amid rival interest from Liverpool and Leeds.
“Yes, yes, it is possible,” Mudryk told The Sunday Times when asked about a potential switch. “The Premier League is the best league in the world and everyone wants to play in this league.”
Tipped to be the next Luka Modric, Rennes midfielder Majer was scouted by Arsenal in Croatia’s Nations League match against Denmark last Thursday.
That is according to the Mirror who claim Real Madrid and Barcelona also want the 24-year-old after he netted the winner in Zagreb.
A fee of £44m may be enough to sign Majer with it reported that he could be a long-term replacement for Granit Xhaka.
