Arteta eyes Man City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko

Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta is reportedly considering a move to Manchester City defender Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The versatile defender has failed to make a key role in Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City squad, and he could be one of the players allowed to leave.

It turns out that Arteta and his co-workers are considering a move for the 25-year-old, who could be given a midfield role, where he usually plays while on international duty with the Ukraine national team.

Zinchenko was originally signed as a midfielder but Guardiola moved to the left-back position.

Arteta is preparing for a major change ahead of the new season, with a top-tier striker his number one priority.

Interestingly enough, he has also set his eyes on Man City striker Gabriel Jesus.

The Brazilian has one year left in his current deal at the Etihad, and City could be ready to cash in on it.

His future may have been decided by the recent signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

However, Arsenal are not the only club interested in the multi-talented defender and midfielder, while they also face heavy competition for Jesus.
