New Bayern Munich manager Vincent Kompany is set to make his former Manchester City team-mate Oleksandr Zinchenko his first signing as Bayern Munich boss.

The City legend was unveiled as the new head coach of the Bavarian giants on Thursday, May 30, following the confirmation of his shock move from relegated Burnley.

Kompany has been handed the immense task of returning the club to top-level performance after a disappointing 2023-24 campaign.

The 38-year-old will hope that his attacking brand of football – which saw the Clarets obliterate their competition in the Championship but ultimately proved too audacious in the top-flight – will be fruitful in the Bundesliga and Champions League.

According to the Mirror, to help in his endeavor, Kompany is keen to enlist the services of Arsenal defender Zinchenko, who has fallen out of favor at the Emirates.

The Ukrainian moved to north London from the Etihad in 2022 and was an instant success in his debut campaign but he has since fallen down the pecking order and ended last season as the Gunners’ third-choice left-back.

Vincent Kompany and Oleksandr Zinchenko played together at Manchester City from 2016 to 2019 before Kompany left for Anderlecht in 2019 and the Ukrainian left for Arsenal in 2022.

Zinchenko has two years left on his Arsenal contract but could leave the club following his recent misfortunes. After a sterling debut season with the North London outfit, Zinchenko has struggled in his second season.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta still considers the Ukrainian key to his Arsenal squad but may face a tough task convincing him to stay at the Emirates after dropping off the rank in the Spaniard’s left-back options.
