Wolves transfer news: Wolves asked about Oleksandr Zinchenko
Wolves have reportedly asked about the availability of Manchester City star Oleksandr Zinchenko.
According to 90min, Wanderers are one of several clubs to have shown interest in the 25-year-old.
The report mainly focuses on Arsenal and their interest in the Ukraine international.
But the Gunners face stiff competition, with Wolves, Chelsea, Newcastle, AC Milan, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund all keen.
Zinchenko has been with City since 2016 when he joined Russian side Ufa.
The star enjoyed a successful spell at the Etihad Stadium, winning 10 trophies so far.
He has registered 127 appearances for City so far.
Zinchenko came to City as a midfielder but played many games at left-back under Pep Guardiola.
City are reportedly asking for a fee in excess of £30million for the Ukraine international.
Some Wolves fans will recall the summer of 2018 when the club were preparing for their first season in the Premier League after promotion.
Wolves have reportedly agreed a £16million fee with City to sign Zinchenko (via Sky Sports).
Wanderers wanted to bring him to Molineux, but the player refused as he wanted to stay and fight for his place.
Oleksandr Zinchenko at Wolves is unlikely, but he would make a brilliant signing
Zinchenko would make a fantastic signing for Wolves, although he is unlikely to join.
The star isn’t exactly considered one of City’s superstars, but there’s no doubt he’s a quality player and one of their unsung heroes.
He is certainly highly regarded by his manager. In January 2021, Pep Guardiola said of Zinchenko (mancity.com): “He knows how to play football. He’s playing at a good level, especially his consistency and he’s always smart tactically and defensively, he’s so, so smart that he doesn’t make mistakes.
Zinchenko is versatile, technically sound and plays with heart.
He would make a great signing for many clubs, including Wolves.
He would be a very nice option to have in midfield, where he often plays and stands out for his country.
With City wanting north of £30million, it’s likely Wanderers would have to offload someone like Adama Traore, Morgan Gibbs-White or Ruben Neves to fund the move.
