Arsenal set to complete ‘summer signing’ with £30m Zinchenko

Mikel Arteta has decided to bring the Ukrainian to the Emirates Stadium in a deal worth around £30m. Zinchenko played both left-back and midfield and worked with Arteta at City.

A transfer would be the second time this summer that Arsenal have dealt with City, following a £45m deal for Gabriel Jesus, and talkSPORT’s Darren Ambrose believes it could be any club’s best deal.

He said: “I think he could be one of the signings of the summer and I don’t like to say that because I’m a Spurs supporter. [Kieran] Tierney has his injury issues so he’s more than adequate, but I think he’ll go into midfield and I think that improves Arsenal’s midfield.

“When you look at him for Ukraine he plays in midfield, he gives you that bite, he’s clearly a leader too, he’s clearly a good character. Mikel Arteta knows him from Manchester City so they have a good relationship, Gabriel Jesus is already there.

“City and Arsenal now have this relationship. City don’t care about Arsenal at the moment, they also send players to them at half-decent prices. [For] £30m in the current climate is a good price for a player who I believe will go straight into the Arsenal first team.
