Everton have reportedly now reached out to the representatives of Oleksandr Zinchenko ahead of a potential move this summer.
The Lowdown: Underrated?
Zinchenko perhaps does not get as many plaudits as some of the other players in Manchester City’s squad.
He does not always play under Pep Guardiola – in fact he only made 28 appearances in total over all competitions last season – but is always ready to be called upon whether he is asked to play at left-back or in the centre of midfield, racking up time in four different positions during his time in Manchester.
The Latest: Everton contact
Writing in his latest piece for 90min, transfer insider Graeme Bailey has revealed that the Goodison Park outfit are one of a number of clubs to have now reached out to Zinchenko’s representatives over a possible move.
West Ham United, Leicester City and Arsenal have done the same, while Wolves also hold an interest.
However, the Ukraine international is thought to cost in excess of £30m.
The Verdict: Sign
Nonetheless, Zinchenko would be worth every penny, given his added versatility, as he can provide a seriously quality option in the middle of the park while also giving sufficient cover to fellow countryman Vitaliy Mykolenko at left-back.
Kyle Walker has even gone as far as to claim that his teammate is ‘incredible’ and ‘more gifted’ technically than City superstar Kevin De Bruyne, so the Toffees would be getting a real coup if they sign the 25-year-old.
