Manchester City star Oleksandr Zinchenko is set to complete a move to Premier League rivals Arsenal, according to Daily Mail.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is keen on signing Oleksandr Zinchenko, capable of playing at left back and in midfield, for additional versatility within the squad as they hunt for a return to the Champions League.

The pair enjoyed a strong relationship when Arteta was Pep Guardiola’s assistant in the north west and Zinchenko’s profile has grown over recent seasons.

The 25-year-old is hoping for more game time with a move to Arsenal after playing 15 times last season for Manchester City.

Zinchenko is valued at around £35million by Manchester City and it is expected the transfer will be completed in the coming days.
