Betis don’t rule out City’s Zinchenko

Real Betis have not totally disregarded the option of signing Manchester City’s Oleksander Zinchenko on transfer deadline day.

Zinchenko would add competition to the left wing-back slot for Betis with Junior Firpo the only candidate following Riza Durmisi’s summer exit to Lazio.

The Ukranian has not been included in a City matchday squad this season but they are thought to want a permanent sale in the region of €16m.

Sevilla Info report the versatile player would add great competition to the Seville-based club’s squad but they are unwilling to pay such a large transfer fee, and would prefer a loan deal.

Furthermore, despite Europa League participation it is thought that Quique Setien does not want a large squad, which may rule out any last-minute move.

Betis have struck a season-long loan arrangement for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.
