Report: Oleksandr Zinchenko Is Everton’s Alternative Midfield Transfer Target

The Ukrainian international is expected to leave this summer and Everton were the frontrunners for his signature however now their main midfield target is Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Winks.

Zinchenko would be open to a move away from Manchester City so he can play more in his natural position in the middle of the park, also Pep Guardiola is keen on signing natural left-back Marc Cucurella from Brighton so Zinchenko’s playing time even in the backline would be minimalised.

Frank Lampard wants a deal done for Harry Winks though which may compromise any deal for City’s makeshift left-back.

West Ham United were one of the other Premier League sides linked with Zinchenko but according to multiple reports Everton showed the most interest.

Now we will have to wait and see whether The Toffees will sign two midfielders this summer or whether it will depend on outgoings before City fans will have to say goodbye to the four time Premier League winner.
