Todd Boehly hilariously pokes fun of Arsenal’s Trossard transfer and backs Chelsea decision to poach Mudryk from rivals | The Sun

TODD BOEHLY weighed into the Leandro Trossard versus Mykhailo Mudryk debate by backing the new Chelsea star.

The Blues hijacked Arsenal's move for Mudryk after paying £88million for the Ukrainian after weeks of courting from the Gunners.



Arsenal had two bids for the winger rejected by Shakthar Donetsk before he finalised a move to Stamford Bridge last weekend.

The Gunners wasted little time in finding a replacement and secured a £27m deal for Brighton star Trossard.

In response a Chelsea fan on Twitter asked which deal was the better piece of business.

And Blues chief Boehly got involved by 'liking' the tweet, indicating his belief that Chelsea's acquisition of Mudryk was the better of the two transfers.

Arsenal fans were split on the signing of Trossard, 28, with some concerned by his age.

But many believe he could hit the ground running at the Emirates thanks to his Premier League experience.

Trossard has been in superb form this season with seven goals in 16 Prem games – including a hat-trick at Liverpool.

The Belgian will give manager Mikel Arteta options to play down the left wing – potentially against Manchester United.

During his time at the Amex, he mostly played on the left forward position and he could do the same at Arsenal.

Another option Arteta would have with Trossard is to use him as a left-wing-back.

Although he prefers to be further up the pitch, under former boss Graham Potter he often excelled in the position.
