EPL: Emmanuel Petit says Chelsea’s £89m January signing not happy at Stamford Bridge


Arsenal legend, Emmanuel Petit has said that he is not sure Chelsea’s new signing, Mykhailo Mudryk is ‘happy’ at Stamford Bridge and suspects the 22-year-old would rather be at Arsenal.

The Ukraine international looked set to be heading to Arsenal a couple of weeks ago in a deal worth around £80m, but ended up at Chelsea as the Blues swooped in and signed the young star from Shakhtar Donetsk for 89 million pound.

The winger went on to sign an eight-and-a-half year contract with Graham Potter’s side and was introduced in the second half of Chelsea’s goalless Premier League draw at Liverpool.

Petit, a former Arsenal midfielder and retired France international, questioned if he would be happier at Arsenal.

“It is still a big gamble for the future. At first he wanted to go to Arsenal, but ended up at Chelsea, so my question is: ‘Is he happy about that?’ I’m not sure,” Petit told Betway.

“But definitely he would add quality to their squad. I hope that he will be successful at Chelsea,” he added.
