As he nears a transfer to Arsenal, Oleksandr Zinchenko has left Manchester City’s preseason training and is heading to Orlando for a physical.
The original value of Arsenal’s bid is said to be £30 million, plus a further $2 million in attainable add-ons for a total value of $36 million.
Zinchenko is said to have left City’s training camp in Houston, Texas, and is currently his route to Orlando, Florida, where he will have a medical. Edu, the sports director of Arsenal, is also due in Orlando today to assist with the deal’s completion.
HE IS WITH THE ARSENAL SQUAD ALREADY!
As reported by multiple fans present at the stadium for Arsenal’s game against Orlando City, Zinchenko was already on the team bus with the Arsenal squad as he was snapped by one of the fans getting off of it.
Zinchenko has primarily been utilised at left-back by Guardiola, despite the fact that he prefers to play in midfield for his nation. Although Arsenal has been aiming to bolster one particular area of the field, his adaptability is sure to be attractive.
With four victories in each of the Premier League and Carabao Cup, Zinchenko has achieved great success at City. He also participated in the 2021 Champions League final and won one FA Cup.
He transferred from the Russian club Ufa to Manchester City in the summer of 2016, and he has since made a total of 128 appearances for the Premier League team across all competitions.
HE HAD A MEETING WITH EDU GASPER AND GREETED FANS
