Arsenal have confirmed Oleksandr Zinchenko as Mikel Arteta’s fifth summer signing in a £30million deal with Manchester City.
The Ukrainian reunites with the Gunners boss, both having joined City within a day of each other in July 2016 as Arteta builds his side for a return to European football.
Mikel Arteta said of the deal: “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.”
Zinchenko joins Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Jesus as Arsenal’s major signings of the summer while Marquinhos and Matt Turner have joined for smaller fees – which combine to reach around £114m.
