Ex-Arsenal captain Gilberto: ‘Where Zinchenko can perform better’



Former Arsenal captain Gilberto Silva feels Oleks Zinchenko should play permanently in midfield.

Zinchenko has been played primarily at left-back by manager Mikel Arteta this season.

But Gilberto told “Before Arteta thinks about which players he can bring into his team, he needs to consider if he is going to lose players.

“If he is going to lose players, they will obviously need to bring in new players to replace them.


“Having Zinchenko play again as a central midfielder I think would be really good for Arsenal – so maybe left-back would be a position they could think about strengthening.

“But it all depends on Mikel and what he wants. He needs two players like [Kieran] Tierney and Zinchenko fighting for the same position so that it raises the standards.”
