Arsenal fans were in great spirits in the Transfer Tavern last night as Tottenham Hotspur bottled their title push and they’ve now received an intriguing boost in the transfer window.
European outlet UNIAN quote Dynamo Kiev’s president Igor Surkis as stating the club would be prepared to sell star-man Andriy Yarmolenko this summer, should the club receive an offer that suits them.
‘If I get an offer that will suit Dynamo and Yarmolenko wants to go to this club, I’ll let him. My position is that we should not let Yarmolenko go to such clubs like Everton and Stoke City. Dynamo is Dynamo and Stoke City is Stoke. We’re playing in the Champions League, and Stoke City are fighting for survival.’
Although not directly mentioned in the quotes, Metro state Arsenal hold an interest in the Ukrainian international as they look to improve their attacking options over the close season, particularly regarding their vulnerable position on the right-flank.
The Gunners are under pressure to seal some top transfers this summer after a disappointing season and our landlord believes Yarmolenko would fit the bill perfectly.
Arsenal fans, would Yarmolenko be a good fit at your club? Let us know in the comments below!
