An agreement in principle of around £30 million has been found between the two clubs.
Zinchenko is now closing in on becoming the north London club’s fourth summer signing.
He would represent better value than Martínez who is reportedly joining United for €55 million.
The 25-year-old can also fill both central midfield and left-back, two positions which Arsenal needed to strengthen.
In addition, he also arrives with Premier League experience, having made 76 league appearances for City.
