Personal terms stall Arsenal's move for Oleksandr Zinchenko, after agreeing £30m fee with Man City

Arsenal are inching closer to adding Manchester City left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko to their squad after having their £30m bid accepted.

Just weeks after buying Gabriel Jesus from the league champions, Arsenal have returned to Manchester to bid for Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The 25-year-old left-back has won four Premier League titles with the Citizens since joining them back in 2016 from Ufa.

But with City in talks for Brighton left-back Marc Cucurella, Zinchenko is falling down Pep Guardiola's pecking order at the Etihad Stadium.

As a result, Arsenal have made a move for the Ukrainian, with a £30million bid from the Gunners accepted on Saturday.

However, Zinchenko is still in talks with the Gunners over ther personal terms in his contract, with the two parties still discussing the players salary.

Should there be a breakthrough in negoiations, Zinchenko is expected to be announced as an Arsenal player early next week.

Zinchenko would be Arsenal's fifth signing of the summer, after Arteta already added young Brazilian Marquinhos, Matt Turner Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Jesus to his squad.

He'd add some much-needed competition to Arsenal's left flank, where Kieran Tierney is currently the first choice.

Arsenal were seemingly in pursuit of Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, but after entering a bidding war with Manchester United for the Argentine, it seems the Red Devils have pipped their rivals to his signature.
