Manchester United legend Paul Scholes have said that Arsenal pulled off a major miracle with the signing of Zinchenko in the last summer. Hence, it looks like the Gunners have got a bargain from Manchester City.

Although, it also looks like City will be careful before selling their player for the right price to the Gunners. This is because they are now the Gunners are also challenging for titles.


Arsenal have made brilliant progress in terms of their on-field progress. The fans of the club are also now not disappointed with the owners of the club. Manager Mikel Arteta and sporting director Edu Gaspar have also helped the owners take the right decisions. One of the right decisions is the transfer recruitment. Before Arteta’s arrival, transfer recruitment was all over the place. Nobody from the club could not decide the sort of football they wanted to play.

Hence, this also led to the sacking of former manager Unai Emery. However, after the arrival of Mikel Arteta, he is the only one that gets the final say on the transfers. Arsenal have also made the decision that they will not overpay for any player. The decision to not overpay also meant that Chelsea beat them to the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, they have also benefitted from the policy. A number of players like Ben White, Ramsdale, and Gabriel Jesus look like bargain signings for the club. The value of these players in the market is increasing. However, the biggest bargain they got in the last summer transfer is the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City.


Arsenal signed Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City in the last summer transfer window. Both the players have made a brilliant start to their Gunners careers. Gabriel Jesus was brilliant before suffering an injury in the World Cup. Whereas, Zinchenko is slowly starting to show his true value for the Gunners. Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has also said.,

“I am a bit surprised Man City sold him with the big influence he has had. And Man City have struggled a little at left-back, which is even more surprising.

He also said that he has never seen a left-back making such a big impact for a top club. Hence, it looks like Arsenal have got themselves a bargain. Although, this does not change the selling players strategy of Manchester City. A report claimed that they will now not sell to the Gunners in the future windows. However, all the rumors are false. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has said that he is not going to keep a player at the club that is not happy with staying. He also said every player is replaceable in the transfer windows.

Arsenal will also keep on pursuing their transfer targets irrespective of their current clubs. The only thing is the price should be right for the Gunners to sign them. Hence, it looks like both the Gunners and Manchester City will not change their transfer strategy. It is because this strategy has helped both teams win titles and cup competitions.
