Zinchenko has recommended a player to Arteta, is open to joining Arsenal

Arsenal may be looking at the January transfer window as the perfect opportunity to make a few more additions to their squad.

Their incredible start to the campaign may attract some players who previously would not have considered a move to the Emirates.

A report from 90min suggests that Arsenal may be looking within the club to find their new signings.

The report suggests that Oleksandr Zinchenko has already made a recommendation to Mikel Arteta about a possible transfer target.

He immediately earned a place in Arteta’s starting eleven but has been unavailable through injury for the past month.

It didn’t take long for Zinchenko to make his voice heard among his teammates.

The winger was seen yelling at the team during a meeting in just his fourth game against Manchester United.

Zinchenko has now also made his voice heard within the Arsenal hierarchy, after recommending that they should sign winger Mykhalo Mudryk.

Zinchenko recommends Mudryk to Arsenal

90min’s report suggests Zinchenko has given Mudryk a ‘brilliant reference’ to Arsenal bosses.

Shakhtar’s ‘unstoppable’ winger was one of the revelations of the Champions League this season.

The 21-year-old left winger scored three goals and provided two assists as Shakhtar narrowly missed out on the round of 16.

He has also registered nine goal contributions in eight league games in Ukraine.

Mudryk has already said he would be open to joining Arsenal and said he “can’t say no” to a move.

However, Arsenal are likely to face a lot of competition for the signing of Mudryk.

Shakhtar also significantly increased Mudryk’s asking price after his performances in Europe.

Zinchenko’s recommendation to sign Mudryk will give Arsenal some confidence that he is worth a big fee.

The couple have known each other well since they played together for the Ukrainian national team.

That relationship could flourish even more if they both perform at The Emirates every week.
