Manchester City have no doubts been one of the most active clubs in this summer transfer window.
The Manchester club have seen a couple of first team players exit the club, such as Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus and Zack Steffen as well as a number of academy players including the likes of Egan-Riley, Gavin Bazunu, Romeo Lavia and have secured loan moves for Callum Doyle, Taylor Harwood-Bellis and Tommy Doyle.
These outgoings of course haven’t been confirmed without a number of incoming players such as Kalvin Philips, Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez and Stefan Ortega have been added to the squad.
Another player now on the radar of quite a number of clubs is Oleksandr Zinchenko. The Ukrainian has been linked to several clubs and Arsenal are the most determined to sign the player should they fail to land Lisandro Martínez.
Manchester City are not standing in the way of the player and will allow him leave for the right price.
According to reports from The Secret Scout, Man City are willing to let Zinchenko leave as Pep Guardiola has been impressed by academy player – Josh Wilson-Esbrand.
The 19-year-old defender joined the club in 2019 from West Ham United and has since been a constant feature in Man City’s U-18 and PL2 squad. The Englishman made his debut for the first team in October 2021 in an EFL match against Wycombe Wanderers which ended 6-1 with Wilson-Esbrand providing an assist.
City will not look to replace Zinchenko if he leaves and even though Marc Cucurella has been mentioned in transfer news, he would be a direct replacement for Benjamin Mendy who has been suspended due to a number of scandals.
