The Mykhailo Mudryk transfer saga was one that caused a lot of drama at the time.
It looked like the winger was set to join Arsenal, and he was making a lot of public comments about the move. But Chelsea came in at the last minute and hijacked the deal.

Arsenal went on to sign Leandro Trossard from Brighton instead, and there have been disputes between Chelsea and Arsenal fans ever since.
Mudryk has had a slow start, naturally, but Trossard has hit the ground running, again, naturally. One already has Premier League experienced and has walked into an established team, the other has never played abroad and came into a team that is in the middle of a huge rebuild.
It’s a shame that Ian Wright has failed to fathom that in his comments on Mudryk that he made on his own podcast this week.
“They (Arsenal) didn’t get Mudryk and that might be the best thing that happened to them,” Wright’s said on Wrighty’s House Podcast.
“I don’t care what anyone says, Mudryk, and we’ve seen up to this point, he wouldn’t have done what Trossard has done what Trossard has been doing up to this point.
“Mudryk, for his own sake, I do feel sorry for him because I don’t know if there’s anyone in the history of football whose had to have a transfer of that amount of money with so much politicalness around him. It’s almost unfair.”
