Arsenal have been proactive in securing new deals for key players like Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, and William Saliba, signalling their commitment to building a strong squad amidst their ascent up the Premier League standings. 

However, uncertainty looms over the future of Oleksandr Zinchenko, according to reports from The Athletic.

Zinchenko, who joined Arsenal from Manchester City almost two years ago, played a pivotal role in City’s 2021-22 Premier League title-winning campaign. Despite an impressive start at Arsenal, recent performances have raised doubts among fans about his suitability for the team. The left-back position, in particular, may be an area Arsenal seeks to reinforce in the coming months.


While Zinchenko still has two years left on his contract with Arsenal, this period often prompts clubs to reassess their options, either by selling the player for a reasonable fee or offering them a new contract. However, The Athletic’s report suggests that Arsenal have not initiated ‘significant’ talks with Zinchenko yet, leaving his future uncertain.

Criticism from fans has escalated, with Zinchenko reportedly being booed during Arsenal’s recent 2-0 loss to Villa. This growing division among supporters adds to the concerns surrounding his decline over the past year.

Despite being a crucial figure in Arsenal’s push for the Premier League title last season, Zinchenko now faces competition from Jakub Kiwior, who has filled in admirably at left-back. With Kieran Tierney loaned out to Real Sociedad and potential replacements like Kiwior and the injured Jurrien Timber vying for positions, Zinchenko’s prospects seem increasingly uncertain.

The possibility of Tierney’s departure could further complicate Zinchenko’s situation, potentially leaving him competing for the left-back role with Kiwior and Timber in the upcoming season. 

Given his diminishing form and the emergence of alternatives, Arsenal may consider cashing in on Zinchenko during the summer transfer window, especially with only two years left on his contract.
