Arsenal are in talks with Manchester City about a deal to sign Ukrainian international Oleksandr Zinchenko.
The two clubs have already done business this summer, with the Gunners sealing the £45 million capture of striker Gabriel Jesus, but it looks like they have not finished their interaction just yet.
The Gunners have made left back a priority, with Scottish international Kiernan Tierney continually plagued by injury, whilst his understudy Nuno Tavares has proved to be wildly inconsistent alternative.
Tavares might be allowed to leave on loan to develop his game, but that makes the need for a replacement a pressing issue.
They had hope to sign Lissandro Martinez from Ajax, but he is now set to join Manchester United after they out-bid the Gunners.
Zinchenko, has is valued at £35 million, has the virtue that he can play in several positions, usually being deployed in midfield when playing for his country.
