Early on this week, Arsenal anticipates completing negotiations with Manchester City to acquire Oleksandr Zinchenko as a player.
It is believed that the overall transfer cost for the Ukraine international will be around in the neighbourhood of thirty million pounds, and it is anticipated that there will be no issues with the player’s personal terms.
The negotiations over the transaction are still going on, and there is a growing sense of optimism that it will be finalised in the near future.
After beginning his professional career with Russian club Ufa, Zinchenko moved on to Manchester City when he was just a teenager and has been with the club for just over six years.
The 25-year-old can play a range of positions around the pitch, including left back and central midfield, and he was tutored by Mikel Arteta during the time that Arteta was Pep Guardiola’s assistant at Manchester City. Arteta is now the manager of Arsenal.
Arsenal have been looking to add a left-sided defender to their roster and attempted to make a deal with Ajax to get Manchester United-bound player Lisandro Martinez.
According to a report from Sky Sports News from the month of June, Manchester City is looking to acquire a left defender and has not abandoned their pursuit of Brighton’s Marc Cucurella.
The player, who is now 23 years old and came to the Premier League from Getafe in a transaction that was worth approximately £15 million last summer, had a very successful debut campaign in the English top flight.
Given that Cucurella still has four years left on his deal with the Amex, Brighton has stated that they do not want to see Cucurella go, and it would take a significant offer for them to consider selling him.
