Oleksandr Zinchenko has been a key player for Arsenal since completing a £30million move from reigning Premier League champions Manchester City last summer
Oleksandr Zinchenko is hoping he can help Arsenal win their first Premier League title since 2004. The Ukrainian defender had won four titles in five years at Manchester City before completing a £30million move to the Emirates Stadium last summer.
