Arsenal Confirm Signing Of Oleksandr Zinchenko From Man City

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko on a long-term contract from Manchester City in a deal worth £32million.

Gatekeepers News reports that the 25-year-old who has picked up four Premier League titles and a runners-up medal in the 2021 Champions League final has moved to the Emirates Stadium after a six-year spell with Manchester City.

Arsenal in a statement said he will bring “huge experience of the Premier League and international football to our squad,” having made 128 appearances for City and playing 52 times for his country Ukraine.

Left-sided player Alex, who is comfortable operating in midfield and defence, has won both the Premier League and League Cup four times. He has also won the FA Cup once and played in the 2021 UEFA Champions League final.

Technical Director Edu said, “I’m very pleased to see how we’re working as a team here in the club. We put a plan together early and Oleksandr Zinchenko was a main focus on our list. We’re pleased to have Alex with us now because he has the attributes which I’m sure are going to put our squad at a different level.”

Mikel Arteta added, “We’re so happy Alex has joined us. He’s a player that I personally know really well and continued to follow him after my time at Manchester City. Alex is a high quality player who will give us options and versatility. It’s not only about the positions he can play but as well, the versatility he will give us in attack and defence. Alex is a person with great human qualities and character, and I’m delighted that everyone has made this huge effort to bring Alex to the club.”

 

Alex, has therefore, joined the likes Gabriel Jesus, Marquinhos, Matt Turner and Fabio Vieira to become the fifth new signing of the club.
