While the North London club has sent a clear message that they are capable of becoming title contenders their task of rebuilding the squad has not been completed.

The Premier League giants are looking to bring in more attacking options in a bid to strengthen their attacking department. They are monitoring several key players they can plot a move for and one of them is Ukrainian forward Mykhailo Mudryk who is currently playing for Shakhtar Donetsk in the Ukrainian Premier League.
