‘We’re going to miss him’: Title winner says his teammate has left the club amid rumours he’s going to join Arsenal

Premier League star midfielder Rodri has all but confirmed that Oleksandr Zinchenko has left the club amid rumours claiming that he’s going to sign for Arsenal.

Multiple reports have revealed that the Ukrainian is on his way to Arsenal after the Gunners reached an agreement with Manchester City for a fee of £30 million. Rodri’s comments now suggest that it’s only a matter of time before the move will be completed.

Rodri bids farewell to Arsenal-bound Oleksandr Zinchenko

Rodri knows Zinchenko very well. They’ve won multiple Premier League titles together – the most recent of which was last season, in which the Ukrainian starred in the final game of the campaign.

The rumours linking Zinchenko with a move to Arsenal are already red hot, and Rodri has now fueled the fire by revealing that the Ukrainian is no longer with Manchester City.

The Spaniard said, as quoted by The Metro: “Oleks is not with us anymore. He’s been great as a teammate and as a player.

“He deserved the best and we are going to miss him, but this is football, it continues and new players come in. We are happy for him.”

On his way

Both Manchester City and Arsenal are in the United States on their pre-season tour. Pep Guardiola and co are currently in Houston, Texas, while the Gunners are in Orlando to take part in the Florida Cup.

Reports revealed yesterday that Zinchenko left the City camp in Texas to fly over to Orlando to complete the move. It was also claimed that the Ukrainian is set to undergo a medical at some point today.

Arsenal should be really pleased with their business so far. Marquinhos, Matt Turner and Fabio Vieira are all decent additions, while Gabriel Jesus is a truly spectacular signing.

Now, with Zinchenko set to make his move to the Emirates, Mikel Arteta’s side is considerably stronger than they were last season, and it will be interesting to see how they’ll fare in the upcoming campaign.
