Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern had gathered quietly in the corner, not expecting any major news from their club in the final days of the window, but they’ve sparked into life this afternoon after sensational reports.
Ukrainian outlet Sport state that Arsenal have agreed a £23m deal to bring Andriy Yarmolenko to North London at the end of the season, beating a host of rival Premier League clubs to the signature of the Dynamo Kiev star.
Recently tied-down to a new five year deal with the Ukrainian side, Yarmolenko was a top-target for Everton and his agent had been spotted a number of times at Goodison Park.
However, it seems Arsenal have stolen the march for the signature of the 55-cap Ukrainian star and he’ll provide a massive boost to the Gunners for next season- where they hope they will be defending a Premier League crown.
Our landlord was shocked by these reports and believes it isn’t necessarily a player Arsenal need but you cannot deny his talent.
Arsenal fans, is this the news you wanted? Let us know in the comments below!
