More business to follow for Arsenal?

Mikel Arteta has already raided Manchester City once this summer, adding Gabriel Jesus to his ranks, while Arsenal have also signed Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira, though progress has been slowed since as setbacks over first Raphinha and then Martinez came to light.

Another forward could arrive this summer to provide back-up for Bukayo Saka, although that depends on the future of record signing Nicolas Pepe.

Meanwhile, another midfielder seems likely to join the club too, with the likes of Youri Tielemans and Lucas Paqueta both having been linked with moves to north London.

It is unclear, however, whether the arrival of the versatile Zinchenko, who can play in central midfield as well as at full back, changes their priorities at the Emirates Stadium.
