The report focuses mainly on Arsenal and the interest they have in the Ukraine international.

But the Gunners are facing big competition, with Wolves, Chelsea, Newcastle, AC Milan, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund all keen.

Zinchenko has been with City since 2016 when he joined from Russian side Ufa.

The star has enjoyed a fruitful spell at the Etihad Stadium, winning 10 trophies to date.

He has clocked up 127 appearances for City so far.

Zinchenko came to City as a midfielder, but has played many games at left-back under Pep Guardiola.

City would be seeking a fee in excess of £30 million for the Ukraine international.

Some Wolves fans will remember back to the summer of 2018 when the club was preparing for its first season back in the Premier League following promotion.

Wolves reportedly agreed a £16 million fee with City to sign Zinchenko (via Sky Sports).

Wanderers wanted to bring him to Molineux, but the player turned down the move as he wanted to stay and fight for his place.

Oleksandr Zinchenko to Wolves is unlikely, but he’d make a brilliant signing

Zinchenko would make a fantastic signing for Wolves, although it’s probably quite unlikely he’d join.

The star is not really considered one of the superstars at City, but there is no doubt he is a quality player, and one of their unsung heroes.

He’s certainly really appreciated by his manager. In January 2021, Pep Guardiola said of Zinchenko (mancity.com): “He knows how to play football. He’s playing at a good level, his consistency especially and he is always tactically smart and defensively, he is so, so smart he doesn’t make mistakes.”

Zinchenko is versatile, technically sound and plays with heart.

He’d make a great signing for a lot of clubs, including Wolves.

He’d be a very nice option to have in midfield, where he plays and often stands out for his country.

With City wanting north of £30 million, it’s likely Wanderers would have to offload someone like Adama Traore, Morgan Gibbs-White or Ruben Neves to fund the move.
