Chelsea join Arsenal in the race for Oleksandr Zinchenko

Chelsea have joined Arsenal in the race to sign Manchester City star Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Zinchenko has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this summer, with the Ukrainian struggling to nail down a starting spot in Manchester City’s team.

The 25-year-old, who usually operates as a left-back for Manchester City, has to compete with Joao Cancelo, who is undoubtedly one of the best full-backs in Europe.

Zinchenko has been targeted by Arsenal in recent months, with the Evening Standard reporting that the North London club are keen to bring him in this summer.
