Arsenal given Zinchenko boost as Manchester City close in on left-back signing 0

Reported Arsenal target Oleksandr Zinchenko has mostly been filling in at left-back for Manchester City since he returned to the Etihad from his loan spell with PSV Eindhoven in 2017, with Benjamin Mendy, Pep Guardiola’s only designated option for a long time now, first hampered by frequent injuries and now suspended indefinitely due to accusations of numerous counts of rape. His proposed arrival to the Emirates would surely come in very handy with that in mind as Kieran Tierney has injury issues of his own and manager Mikel Arteta apparently not happy with what he’s seen from Nuno Tavares so far.

Zinchenko to follow Jesus to Arsenal? 0

Arsenal are reportedly working hard on signing Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City this summer as they aim to boost their attacking ranks, and according to several sources, Oleksandr Zinchenko could accompany the Brazilian striker on the road to North London.

Grown as a central, box-to-box or attacking midfielder, Zinchenko stepped into the left-back role at the Etihad when manager Pep Guardiola asked him to, after the problems with Benjamin Mendy began. The 25-year-old now plays almost exclusively on the left defensive flank. But though his performances there have been excellent, City are believed to be targeting a designated left-back in the market this summer, and let’s be frank, Zinchenko won’t be getting into that midfield ahead of the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva or Ilkay Gundogan any time soon.
