It’s official! Arsenal just announced that they’ve signed Alex Zinchenko from Manchester City. The move cost £30M with £2M in “achievable add-ons” and the Ukrainian has signed a new contract with the Gunners through 2026. Zinchenko joins Matt Turner, Fabio Vieira, Gabriel Jesus, and Marquinhos as the fifth incoming transfer for Mikel Arteta, and there are reports Edu is not done with his business for the summer window.

Where Zinchenko will line up is an open question, but one thing is for sure, he’s not been bought simply to be a backup for Kieran Tierney at left back.
