Bayern Munich and Newcastle are reportedly interested in signing Zinchenko during the summer transfer window.

Oleksandr Zinchenko signed for Arsenal in 2022 from Manchester City in a £30 million deal. In his first season with the Gunners, Zinchenko was in fine form. However, this season, the Ukrainian has been plagued by fitness issues that have kept him out of a significant number of games this season.

Zinchenko could be allowed to leave. With Jakub Kiwior’s recent performances in recent games providing reassurance at left-back in the absence of Oleksandr Zinchenko. The London club also have other options in the position, with Jurriën Timber and Takehiro Tomiyasu both capable of playing at left-back.

According to Football Transfers, Bayern Munich have identified the Ukrainian left-back as one of the options to replace Alphonso Davies’ potential departure to Real Madrid in the summer.

According to Football Transfers, Newcastle are also monitoring the player’s situation as they are struggling in this position and manager Eddie Howe has relied on Dan Burn for the majority of the season to cover this shortcoming.

Oleksandr Zinchenko has a contract with Arsenal until 2026. Bayern Munich and Newcastle will have to pay a significant amount of money for the services of the Ukrainian star. Arsenal are expected to demand at least £38 million for the 27-year-old. This would allow Arsenal to free up funds to sign a striker this summer.

Oleksandr Zinchenko has made 21 appearances for Arsenal this season, scoring one goal and providing two assists. He has also played 4 games in the Champions League for the London club.
