Arsenal in talks to sign 26-year old attacker for £20million


Premier League giants Arsenal have begun negotiations over the signing of Andriy Yarmolenko, according to the reports from the Daily Express

Arsenal have moved quickly during the January transfer window to strengthen their midfield with the signing of Mohamed Elneny from Basel recently.

Having added a much needed midfielder, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is now on the lookout to sign a new attacker to provide an alternative option to Olivier Giroud and a host of names such as Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema continue to be linked with the Gunners.

In a fresh link, it has now been reported that Arsenal are interested in securing the services of Ukrainian superstar Andriy Yarmolenko.

According to reports from the Daily Express, claims have been made that Arsenal are holding talks with Dynamo Kiev over a potential deal for Yarmolenko and the Gunners are prepared to splash as much as £20million to land the 26-year old in January.

Dynamo Kiev manager Sergei Rebrov had admitted a few weeks ago that it would be difficult to keep hold of Yarmolenko and Arsenal can most certainly be encouraged by his words.

Rebrov had said, “I can see his progress and that other teams are interested in him but it all depends on his relationship with the president.

“If you are asking me then I don’t want to sell the player, I want to keep him in the team. But, at the end of the day, it’s all about the relationship with the president.”
