Arsenal attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard has raved about his new Gunners teammate Oleksandr Zinchenko in The Athletic.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have signed Ukraine international Zinchenko from Premier League rivals Manchester City in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners have reportedly paid the Citizens £30 million in transfer fees for the 25-year-old, who can operate as a left-back, left wing-back or midfielder.

Odegaard has said that he has been watching Zinchenko during his time at Premier League champions City, and he has been hugely impressed.

The Norwegian told The Athletic about Zinchenko: “I’ve seen (Zinchenko) play a lot and I really like his qualities, I think he’s a really great player. I think he can play both positions, sometimes as a left-back and midfield,

“I think he can even play as a winger. He can play different positions so I think he will be a great addition to the squad.”

Exciting signing for Arsenal

In our view, Oleksandr Zinchenko is a very good and exciting signing for Arsenal.

The Ukrainian will provide cover for Kieran Tierney at left-back, and he will also give options to manager Mikel Arteta in midfield.

Zinchenko worked with Arsenal manager Arteta when the Spaniard was the assistant manager at Manchester City.

So, the Ukrainian will know how Arteta works, and the Arsenal boss will have signed him knowing fully well the 25-year-old’s strengths and weaknesses.

Arsenal will be aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League table next season as well as compete in the UEFA Europa League.

Zinchenko will be a massive player for the Gunners.
