Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Everton are now ‘keen’ on signing Oleksandr Zinchenko this summer.
The Lowdown: Leaving?
Manchester City are set to make a bid to try and sign left-back Marc Cucurella from Brighton and Hove Albion, which would pave the way for Zinchenko to leave.
He only made 28 appearances in total over all competitions under Pep Guardiola last term, and so could now look to seek a move away in order to get more regular game time.
The Latest: ‘Keen’
Taking to Twitter, Romano has revealed that the Goodison Park outfit, among a number of other clubs, are now ‘keen’ to sign Zinchenko, and is ‘one of their main targets’:
“Manchester City are prepared to let Oleksandr Zinchenko leave as they are targeting Marc Cucurella, with an official bid coming soon – decision was made in May.
“Zinchenko can be sold and Everton have his name in the list as one of the main targets. Other clubs also keen.”
The Verdict: No-brainer
Given that Zinchenko can play in many different positions across the pitch, he would be such a weapon to have in the squad under Frank Lampard.
The Ukraine international is blessed on a technical level, with his teammate Kyle Walker even going as far as to claim that he is ‘incredible’ and ‘more gifted’ than City superstar Kevin De Bruyne, and so having him in the side should enable the Toffees to dominate more games and help them climb the Premier League table.
At City, Zinchenko has won no fewer than 11 trophies, including four league titles (Transfermarkt), and so his winning mentality would be such a useful asset to have in the dressing room should things start to go pear-shaped for the Blues next term.
