‘Gutted’ ‘Arsenal Getting A Bargain’ ‘Squad Depth To The Bin’ Fans Not Happy As City Star Nears 35M Departure

Manchester City are “expected” to sell Oleksandr Zinchenko to Arsenal, according to the Daily Mail journalist Jack Gaughan.

The reliable reporter claims a £35m transfer is currently being thrashed out and, barring any last-minute u-turns, the Ukrainian is likely to complete his move to the Emirates:

The news has not gone down well on Twitter. While not every supporter is necessarily a fan of Zinchenko’s, there are questions being raised about the depth of Pep Guardiola’s squad:

It’s very likely that Zinchenko’s departure will facilitate City’s attempts to sign Marc Cucurella from Brighton.

The Seagulls are believed to be holding out for around £50m so the money raised from Zinchenko’s sale would be put towards the bid for the Spanish international.

Not everyone believes that Cucurella would be an upgrade on Zinchenko but, considering the club’s decent record in the transfer market, there is some hope that Guardiola and director of football Txiki Begiristain are making the right decision.
