Arsenal complete Zinchenko signing
Written by Kieran Miller and Sam Hardy
Arsenal have completed the signing of Manchester City full-back, Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Mikel Arteta‘s side have agreed a deal with Manchester City to bring Oleksandr Zinchenko to London this summer. The fee is around £30M, and the signing is set to be completed by the end of the week. Zinchenko is eager to work with Arteta after Arteta coached Zinchenko during his time at Manchester City.
Gabriel Jesus, who recently joined Arsenal from Manchester City has reportedly managed to persuade Zinchenko to join the Gunners.
After Arsenal missed out on Lisandro Martinez, the Ukrainian would be undoubtedly an excellent option as he’s extremely versatile. Zinchenko features in an attacking midfield role for the Ukraine national team. However, Zinchenko does typically play as a full-back for Pep Guardiola‘s side.
If the Gunners were to use Zinchenko at full-back, the 25-year-old might want reassurance from Arteta that he‘ll get to feature throughout the season. With Nuno Tavares set to be loaned out for the season, Zinchenko will certainly be a part of the team.
