His debut appearance for the Gunners saw the 25-year-old provide an assist in Arsenal’s opening league game of the season against Crystal Palace, showing that he can offer a useful attacking threat for the team.
While the north London club currently only have one predominant left winger in their squad, one man who has been linked with a £30m move to Arsenal in recent days who would not only add depth in that area but also give Mikel Arteta the chance to form a scary duo alongside Zinchenko is Mykhaylo Mudryk.
In 31 senior appearances for Shakhtar Donetsk, the 21-year-old has found the net four times and delivered 12 assists, highlighting his attacking talent.
Having also made four appearances for Ukraine alongside Zinchenko, this shows the familiarity and understanding that the two players have with each other, which could be enhanced at club level with Arsenal.
To further highlight his attacking talent, in two Champions League games this season against RB Leipzig and Celtic, the winger has scored two goals and provided two assists, showing how capable he is of performing in front of goal on the big stage.
Taking all this into account, if Arteta were able to bring Mudryk to the Emirates, something that the player has admitted he would find hard to turn down, this could give Arsenal a scary Ukrainian partnership on the left-hand side of the pitch with the Shakhtar star and current Gunners full-back Zinchenko.
Ahead of the January transfer window, the north London club should definitely explore the possibility of signing the young attacker and integrating him into the squad. The more that he impresses for Shakhtar at Champions League level, the harder it could be for Edu and co to get their man as other clubs inevitably pop up with interest.
