Incoming Arsenal signing Oleksandr Zinchenko has been spotted wearing the club's colours ahead of tonight's pre-season friendly against Orlando City.

The versatile defender is expected to complete a £32million move from Manchester City in the coming hours, and has joined his new team-mates in Florida on their United States tour.

It appears only a matter of time before the signing is officially confirmed, with Zinchenko at Orlando City's Exploria Stadium. Standard Sport understands he will attend the game to cheer on his new team.

Fans spotted Zinchenko wearing training gear, and the Ukrainian responded with a wave.

Standard Sport understands Zinchenko has signed a four-year deal to become Mikel Arteta's fifth summer signing, and second from the Premier League champions after Gabriel Jesus.

Arteta knows the player from his time as a coach with City and made the Ukrainian a target earlier in the window before pursuing other targets. Zinchenko is expected to play at left-back, though has named midfield - a position he is equally adept at - as his favoured role.
