Ramsdale calls Zinchenko Zinky Winky during new Arsenal stars initiation song
Arsenal's new signing Oleksandr Zinchenko is straight into the thick of it with his initiation after joining from Premier League rivals Manchester City earlier this week.
Zinchenko joined the Gunners in a reported £30m deal, with the versatile Ukrainian looking as if he has already settled into life at the North London side. Thanks to Arsenal's first-choice keeper Aaron Ramsdale, the world has had a glimpse into life in the squad's preseason camp as the midfielder turned full-back was caught singing his initiation song at a team meal.
The 25-year-old was recorded singing Friday by Riton x Nightcrawlers, although we doubt he'll be making the switch to the music industry anytime soon. Ramsdale was also quick to come up with a nickname for his new teammate – calling the ex-Shakhtar Donetsk player Zinky Winky on his Instagram story.

The addition of Zinchenko to Mikel Arteta's side is the second signing the Spanish manager has made from his former employers, with the club also securing Gabriel Jesus's signature earlier this month as well, with the Gunners looking to make a push back into the top four this season.
The side looks in good order, with the return of William Saliba from Marseille similar to a new signing, Arsenal fans will be licking their lips at the prospect of next season, although the teams around them have also managed to bolster their squads, particularly North London rivals Tottenham who pipped them to the Champions League last season.
What song would you sing for your initiation? Let us know in the comments section below.
Spurs, under the experienced watch of Antonio Conte, are looking ahead to the Italian's first full season at the helm. The club has also had a productive transfer window so far, with the likes of Richarlison, Djed Spence and Ivan Perisic all making the move to London.
Arsenal will be hoping for a change in momentum following the drop-off towards the end of last season that meant they narrowly missed out on top four to their rivals. Another gap to bridge is the difference in quality that Manchester City and Liverpool seem to have over other teams as the two north west sides look set to battle it out at the top of the league for the sixth season in a row.
The additions of Erling Haaland and Darwin Nunez to City and Liverpool respectively already show the pulling power both clubs have compared to others in Europe as football fans countdown the days to the new season, although the Community Shield on July 30 is set to give fans a glimpse of what to expect heading into the new season.
