Arsenal ‘working on a deal’ for Everton and West Ham United summer transfer target

Everton have been linked with a move for Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Arsenal are ‘working on a deal’ to sign Manchester City's Oleksandr Zinchenko, reports suggest.

According toThe Athletic, the Gunners have made contact with the Premier League champions over Zinchenko's availability.

The Ukraine international was linked with a move to Everton this summer.

It was claimed that Frank Lampard was interested in playing Zinchenko in his favoured central-midfield role - rather than at left-back where he’s mainly featured at the Etihad Stadium.

But now it appears that Arsenal - who Everton meet in a pre-season friendly in Baltimore on Sunday (00.00 BST) - are very much in the driving seat.

Emirates Stadium boss Mikel Arteta worked with Zinhchenko while assistant manager to Pep Guardiola at Man City.

A fee of £35 million has been mooted, with Mail Online reporting that Chelsea and West Ham United have also lodged enquires during the transfer window.

Arsenal have already swooped for Gabriel Jesus from Man City this summer.
