Arsenal left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko played brilliantly in the important win against Manchester United. Hence, it is clear that the Gunners have made the right decision to sign him from Manchester United.
The Ukrainian defender has also brought experience and leadership to the young Gunners squad. Hence, it is clear that Mikel Arteta has another captainship material player in the squad.
ARSENAL DEFENDER OLEKSANDR ZICHENKO CONTINUES TO IMPRESS
Arsenal won against Manchester United in a thrilling 3-2 win in the Premier League. Hence this win was very important for the Gunners. It is because second-placed Manchester City thrashed Wolves 3-0 courtesy of another Erling Haaland hattrick. Hence, the Gunners had to win against Red Devils to maintain their five-point lead on the top. Therefore, the Gunners players did everything to win against Manchester United. However, the best performance was by former Manchester City player Oleksandr Zinchenko.
Former footballers and pundits also praised the performances of the Arsenal defender. Therefore, it looks like manager Mikel Arteta has pulled off another masterclass signing. This is also another reason for the owners to trust the judgment of Mikel Arteta. Football Journalist Freddie also said,
“Alex Zinchenko. Constantly talking to his teammates. Geeing up the crowd. Never hides, master of keeping the ball. WORLD CLASS.”.
The brilliant performance at left-back also proves that the Gunners need a signing in the midfield position.
THE GUNNERS NEED TO SIGN A MIDFIELDER BEFORE THE END OF THE JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW
According to reports, Arsenal are hoping to sign a midfielder before the end of the January transfer window. However, at the moment, they are focusing on signing young right-back Ivan Fresneda from Real Valladolid. Although, the Gunners should focus on the midfielder signing. This is because Mikel Arteta does not trust the ability of Lokonga and Elneny for long term. Hence, at the moment, there is a lack of depth for the Gunners in the midfield position.
However, this is not the case for the right-back position. Arsenal already have Ben White and Takheiro Tomiyasu for the right-back position. There is also a chance that the club does not have any problems in keeping Cedric till the end of the season. This is because Fulham are struggling to agree on a deal for the right-back. Hence, at the moment, they have 3 right-backs. Therefore, a right-back should not be the priority for the Gunners in the January transfer window.
However, one thing is for sure Arsenal have got bargain signings from Manchester City in the form of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko. Both of the players have won multiple titles with Manchester City. Hence, they have now brought a winning mentality to the Gunners for this season and the future season.
