Oleksandr Zinchenko set to join Arsenal from Manchester City after £32m deal agreed; Ukrainian has won four Premier League titles with Manchester City but only made 15 league appearances last season; Arsenal have already signed Gabriel Jesus from Pep Guardiola’s side this summer.
Arsenal have agreed a £32m deal with Manchester City to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko.
The Gunners are set to pay £30m up front with £2m in add-ons, while personal terms are not expected to be a problem.
The Ukraine international will now leave Man City’s pre-season training camp to link up with Arsenal, who are also in the USA where he will go through the formalities of a medical and sign paperwork.
Zinchenko has spent just over six years at City after joining the club as a teenager from Russian side Ufa.
The 25-year-old, who was coached by Mikel Arteta during the Arsenal manager’s spell as assistant to Man City boss Pep Guardiola, can cover a variety of positions, including left-back and central midfield.
It is understood Arteta is excited about the prospect at working with Zinchenko again and values his versatility as a player.
Zinchenko is expected to team up with former City team-mate Gabriel Jesus at Arsenal after the Brazilian left the Etihad to move to north London earlier this month in a £45m deal.
Zinchenko is also set to become the Gunners’ fifth summer signing following the arrivals of Jesus, Marquinhos, Matt Turner and Fabio Vieira.
