Arsenal's move for Manchester City's Oleksandr Zinchenko has been tipped as the signing of the summer.

Mikel Arteta has moved to bring the Ukrainian to the Emirates Stadium in a deal worth around £30million. Zinchenko has play both at left-back and in midfield and worked with Arteta at City.

A transfer would be the second time this summer that Arsenal have dealt with City, after a £45million deal for Gabriel Jesus, and talkSPORT's Darren Ambrose believes this could be the best business of any club.

He said: “I think this could be one of the signings of the summer and I don’t like to say that because I’m a Spurs supporter. [Kieran] Tierney has his issues with injury so he’s more than adequate cover, but I think he’ll be going into midfield and I think it improves Arsenal’s midfield.

“When you watch him for Ukraine he plays in midfield, he gives you that bite, he’s clearly a leader as well, he’s clearly a good character. Mikel Arteta knows him from Manchester City so they’ve got a good relationship, Gabriel Jesus is already there.

“City and Arsenal have now got that relationship. City are not bothered about Arsenal at the moment so they’re sending them players for half decent prices as well. [For] £30m in today’s climate is a good price for a player I feel will go straight into Arsenal’s first team.”
