Zinchenko could be ‘the signing of the summer’

Darren Ambrose is very impressed with Oleksandr Zinchenko’s Arsenal move.

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. £30m for Zinchenko, [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.

“£30m in the current climate is a good price for a player who I believe will go straight into the Arsenal first team.”
