Arsenal set to profit as Oleksandr Zinchenko signing to set off transfer dominos


Brighton have turned their attention to Arsenal defender Nuno Tavares ahead of Marc Cucurella’s potential departure for Manchester City this summer.

Following the sale of Oleksandr Zinchenko to Arsenal, a deal that is completed save the official announcement, Manchester City and Pep Guardiola are expected to look to replace him with Brighton’s player of the year Cucurella, whom the Seagulls are demanding £50m for.

It is unclear whether they will in fact receive that fee, with the Cityzens unwilling to pay that sum, however all signs point to a deal eventually being struck between the two clubs, and City making Cucurella their fourth signing of the summer.

Brighton to turn to Tavares

In turn, should the Seagulls lose Cucurella to Manchester City this summer, they will reportedly turn to Arsenal left-back Nuno Tavares to fill the gap in their defence.

Signed from Benfica last summer, Tavares enjoyed a mixed campaign last time out, showing signs of quality but also plenty of inexperience that would need to be ironed out.

With Zinchenko making the switch to north London, a loan to the South Coast would be a major benefit to all parties. Tavares would be offered regular football, Brighton would get another talented young defender, while Arsenal would see their talent grow and test himself on a regular basis in the top flight.

It is a transfer domino that the Gunners come out of firmly on top.
