Mykhailo Mudryk was taunted by Arsenal supporters for his decision to join Chelsea over the Gunners in January.
The 22-year-old headed to Stamford Bridge for a fee around £88million, after several weeks of discussions with Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta’s side signed Leandro Trossard, while Chelsea – who thought they had recruited a readymade star – were left regretting their purchase.
Indeed, in the view of a few Arsenal fans Mudryk will also be ruing the commitment, having won just three league matches since arriving in the Premier League.
While Arsenal ready themselves for a return to the Champions League and look best placed to challenge Manchester City’s superiority this campaign.
In a video posted on TikTok, the duo can be seen mocking the 22-year-old, who appears to be stuck in a London traffic.
‘Arsenal bro, Mudryk Arsenal,’ one fan said. ‘Your dream team. Come on, if you had played you would have won the Premier League.’
The winger took the jibes in good spirit and even gave an acknowledging head nod when one of them predicted he’ll be the ‘best player in the world.’

If that is to be the case, Sunday’s display provided no indication. The Ukrainian is coming off another defeat as a Chelsea player after the disappointing 3-1 defeat to West Ham.
Mudryk is still awaiting his first goal for the club after lighting up both the Ukrainian top-flight and, more impressively, the Champions League during the first half of last campaign.
New Chelsea head coach Mauricio Pochettino will hope to unlock the talent that had European heavyweights fighting it out for his signature.
