City are looking to replace outgoing Zinchenko with Brighton Olympic star Marc Cucurella
The Olympic silver medalist has made 38 appearances for the south coast club in the 2021-22 campaign, and is seen as a worthy addition to the Premier League Champions League squad should Zinchenko leave.
City midfielder Lewis Fiorini has joined Blackpool on loan for the season, with the 20-year-old keen to continue his relationship with manager Michael Appleton which began at Lincoln City last season.
Blackpool are also believed to be interested in a similar move for 21-year-old Liverpool defender Rhys Williams.
