Arsenal fans were treated to their first breakfast of the New Year after their West London rivals Chelsea beat them to the signing of their longtime target Mykhaylo Mudryk.

Earlier this week, Chelsea confirmed they had reached an agreement for Mudryk with Shakhtar Donetsk in a deal worth £88.5million.

The 22-year-old Ukrainian winger previously indicated Premier League leaders Arsenal were his preferred destination in a series of social media posts. 

And despite Arsenal being in pole position to sign the forward, the Gunners were reportedly not prepared to break the bank compared to their rivals in Blue who were more than happy to oblige, offering him a lucrative eight and a half-year deal

Following Chelsea’s announcement and unveiling of their new signing, just before their crucial win against Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, fans had since taken social media to react to the Blues’ latest recruitment.

Some fans were quick to criticize the fee involved to get while there was understandable skepticism about what he could offer the Premier League giants.

Regardless, for fans of the iconic soccer gaming franchise EA Sports FIFA, who could be wondering what his signing means for the team, look no further as well as brace yourselves for the in-depth analysis of Mykhailo Mudryk on FIFA 23.

Prior to his January mega-switch to Chelsea, Mudryk was rated 74 OVR for Shaktar Donetsk which automatically means, he was awarded a Silver Rare Card in the game.

That is not expected to change immediately as well regardless of his transfer but changes to his individual attributes might come in subsequent updates of the game.

However, as strange as EA Sports might have been thinking when he was awarded that OVR considering his talent, he has a Career Mode potential OVR of 85.

It is also interesting to note that Mudryk has recorded the fastest sprint time in the UEFA Champions League this season, ahead of the likes of the regular speedstars Alphonso Davies and Kylian Mbappe.

He recorded a top speed of 36.6 kilometres per hour.

Apart from his Dribbling for which he was awarded 78, the rest of his attributes are not honestly encouraging from his Shooting to Passing, Finishing, Long shots and even Set Pieces.

At the moment, Mudryk adds nothing except Pace to Chelsea’s attack as he’s the second fastest player on the team after Raheem Sterling who leads the way with a 90 rating in that department.

However, there’s no need to fret Blues fans. Subsequent updates from EA should see significant changes in Mudryk’s current OVR, with some level of attention needed to be paid to his dribbling and even shooting.

Generally, we expect EA to make major upgrades ahead of the launch of EA Sports FC in 2023.
