Arsenal are close to agreeing a deal with Man City for Oleksandr Zinchenko as the transfer window heats up


Arsenal are close to reaching an agreement with Manchester City to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko, according to talkSPORT.

The Gunners believe Zinchenko’s relationship with manager Mikel Arteta gives them an edge over other suitors from Ukraine valued at £35m.

The north London side are keen to bolster their defensive options this summer with the signing of a left-back among the top priorities.

This follows Kieran Tierney’s patchy string of injuries over the past 12 months.

Zinchenko will also provide crucial versatility to Arteta’s side, with the player capable of playing in both central midfield and on the left wing.

The 25-year-old has been a valuable player in the squad under Pep Guardiola but has seen his starts limited due to competition for places.

As a result, he made just 28 appearances in all competitions last season, leading City to be open to offers.

Of course, he’s not the only player to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer.

Arsenal already agreed a deal to sign Gabriel Jesus from Man City earlier this summer, with Zinchenko possibly in line to join him.

Elsewhere, Raheem Sterling has completed a move to London rivals Chelsea in a deal worth £50m.
