Ukrainian international and Dynamo Kyiv star Andriy Yarmolenko has been linked with a move to England for a long time.
According to the latest reports, the 27-year-old winger could be heading to the Premier League with Spurs, Everton and Stoke waiting in the wings.
The Sun have claimed that the above mentioned PL sides have chased the versatile attacker for years. Perhaps, they forgot to mention the name of Liverpool, who have also tracked him for years and were even linked with him last summer. A few reports from the past are provided below.
Yarmolenko – described by Pep Guardiola as a ‘top-level’ player – would’ve been an amazing signing for Liverpool, but as usual, it’s too little, too late. He has been a key player for Kyiv, who has regularly scored and created goals for the club. He is mainly a right winger but can play effectively on the left flank as well.
This season, in 17 starts, Andriy has directly contributed in no fewer than 9 goals (5 goals and 4 assists). He has scored 28 goals in 66 games for the senior national side.
As per the provided Sun link, the word is out that the Ukrainian side are ready to sell the £100,000-a-week star ($125,000-a-week) for just 9 million pounds ($11million).
Yarmolenko is a quality player, who has a contract with Dynamo Kyiv until 2020 and last summer, he was rated around 30 million euros (RP Online). The Sun have not explained why his asking price has diminished so much now.
