Personal terms are thought not to have been a problem, with Zinchenko set to pen a four year deal on the premise of being handed added gametime in north London than he would have received under Pep Guardiola in the upcoming campaign.
And, as per the Athletic, the defender has arrived in Arsenal’s training camp in Orlando on Tuesday to undergo a medical, which will see him complete his move to Arsenal in the coming days.

More to come from Arsenal
Zinchenko’s arrival will mark the fourth signing of the summer for Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar, following the signings of Matt Turner, Gabriel Jesus and Fabio Vieira.
He is not expected to be the last either, with Arsenal targetting a winger and a central midfielder, while a left centre-back is a lower priority but a target nonetheless.
Additionally, they have plenty of players still at the club that are unlikely to feature this season, with the likes of Pablo Mari, Lucas Torreira and Hector Bellerin all expected to depart.
