Arsenal agree personal terms with Zinchenko but fans joke about ‘City rejects’

Arsenal have reportedly finalised a deal to sign Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City.

The Gunners reached an agreement to sign the versatile midfielder and defender from City last week for a guaranteed £30million fee plus £2m in add-ons. And the north London club have now also agreed personal terms with the Ukrainian.

That means the move is all set for completion, according to transfer guru David Ornstein. And only a medical and the signing of a contract are needed to finalise the transfer.

Zinchenko, who won four Premier League titles with City over his six-year spell, will become the Gunners' fifth signing of the summer. He joins winger Marquinhos, keeper Matt Turner, Fabio Vieira and former City teammate Gabriel Jesus in signing for the Emirates side.

But despite Zinchenko's obvious credentials, he played just 15 league games for City last season and a total of 76 in six seasons. That has led some on social media to criticise Mikel Arteta's policy of signing Man City 'rejects'.

Do you think Arsenal's signings this summer are good enough to land them Champions League football? Let us know in the comments section.

One City fan tweeted: "Arteta just buying our 2nd team as if that will get him top 4 smh."

Another commented: "Arsenal can sign all the City leftovers but it won’t give them a UCL."

Others added: "Man City Reject," and "Arsenal signing deadwoods this season."
