Ukraine international Oleksandr Zinchenko has joined Arsenal on a long term contract from Premier League champions Manchester City, both clubs announced on Thursday.

Financial details were not disclosed but Sky Sports said Arsenal would pay 30 million pounds ($36.05 million) up front with two million pounds in add-ons for the 25-year-old defender.

Zinchenko made more than 100 appearances in all competitions for City, including the 2021 Champions League final where Pep Guardiola’s team finished runners-up to Chelsea.
