Zinchenko, 25, has been at the Etihad since 2016 after making a £1.7million move from Ufa.

The Ukrainian star has won four Premier League titles, playing 128 games in the process.

But Joao Cancelo is City’s No. 1 left-back after another incredible season.

And Pep Guardiola is also said to be in the market for Brighton’s Marc Cucurella.

It means Zinchenko may leave City to seek regular minutes elsewhere.

And the Standard claim Arsenal emerged as a competitor after Arteta worked with Zinchenko during his time as Guardiola’s assistant.

The Gunners boss wants Zinchenko to help mark for the injury-prone Kieran Tierney, who can play at center-back himself.

But Arsenal are also willing to use Zinchenko as a midfielder should the need arise, giving him a regular role.

However, West Ham are lurking as David Moyes prepares to hijack talks.

The Hammers will sell Arthur Masuaku, leaving Aaron Creswell as the club’s sole left-back.

And like Arteta, Moyes would be interested in using Zinchenko as a midfielder as well.

West Ham fell through with a £50million bid for Leeds’ Kalvin Phillips in January.

While new target James Ward-Prowse could demand a similar fee from Southampton.

So Zinchenko’s takeover would solve Moyes’ left-back and midfield problems in one fell swoop.
