Oleksandr Zinchenko has said his final goodbyes to Manchester City as he prepares to play for Arsenal in the coming days.
City are losing a number of key players this summer, which started with Fernandinho returning to Brazil.
Gabriel Jesus has been sold to Arsenal and Raheem Sterling to Chelsea, indicating that things are making a comeback at the Etihad Stadium.
Selling to other top six Premier League clubs is a significant change, and another is on the way, with Zinchenko moving to Arsenal.
Oleksandr Zinchenko has said his final goodbyes to Manchester City.
Since leaving the club to sign Lisandro Martinez from Ajax, Arsenal has been focusing on signing Zinchenko.
Arsenal wants to expand their team, and Martinez was touted as a player who might play left back or centre back.
Martinez has though signed for Manchester United, with Zinchenko now going to Arsenal as a left back and central midfielder.
The Ukrainian is now ready for a move to Arsenal, with the Gunners agreeing to a contract worth 30 million plus 2 million in add-ons.
As he prepares to join Arsenal, the Sun reports that Zinchenko has today said his final goodbyes to his City teammates.
Zinchenko has been hailed as a top player by Pep Guardiola and has since moved on to a more popular role in the City dressing room.
The 25-year-old has apparently left the City's pre-season training in Houston, Texas, and will undergo a medical in the next 24 hours.
It's unclear whether or not it will take place in London or America; Arsenal is currently in the United States and will face Orlando City on Wednesday.
With Zinchenko already being Stateside, it may make sense for the Ukrainian to join the Mikel Artetas team.
Zinchenko worked with Arteta at City, and that connection will have played a critical role in this transaction, and confirmation of the move does not appear to be that far away.
