Fabrizio Romano, a transfer expert, says thus.
According to Romano, City would prefer to let Oleksandr Zincheko go to Arsenal.
Presnel Kimpembe of Paris Saint-Germain, a defender who has previously worked with manager Thomas Tuchel, will now come under attack from Chelsea.
“Manchester City internal decision: Oleksandr Zinchenko is free to leave the team, and Arsenal is ready to make a formal offer.
“Nathan Aké remains at the club despite personal conditions made with Chelsea after discussions with Guardiola.
Chelsea, continue working on Kimpembé, tweeted Romano.
This summer has already seen activity between City and Chelsea, as Raheem Sterling left the Premier League champions in a €55 million transfer.
