Arsenal legend David Seaman has claimed Mykhailo Mudryk only joined Chelsea ahead of Arsenal for the money.
Arsenal had three bids rejected for Mudryk which allowed Chelsea to swoop in at the last minute and sign the 22 year old winger.
The 22-year-old made his debut as a second half substitute against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend and impressed against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Seaman told the Seaman Says podcast: “When he came on he looked really good I was really impressed with a lot of his control, the way he was going past defenders, the little passes that he saw.
“I was thinking he looked special and I thought I would’ve liked him at Arsenal if I’m honest. He’s gone for the money!
“You would think that Martinelli would be the one because when he came on against Liverpool he was on the left so would it be for Martinelli or as another striker. I’m quite happy he didn’t he would’ve upset the squad, I’m sure it would.
“We can’t compare with people like Chelsea, Man City, Liverpool and even Man Utd on the financial side of deals. If we do something really special this year that puts us back up there.”
