Everton and Stoke facing hefty competition for European star

YarmolenkoIt’s a fairly quiet day in the Transfer Tavern today but a murmur of excitement has come from a couple of lads wearing Barcelona shirts sat in the beer garden enjoying a bottle of Sol.

They are laughing at an article on TalkSport that suggests that might be interested in Andriy Yarmolenko from Dynamo Kiev to replace Pedro, who left for Chelsea in the summer.

The amusement comes from the fact that remarkably Everton and Stoke are also interested in the player, who is reportedly keen to join one of Europe’s top leagues.

The lads can’t get their heads around their world famous club being linked with a player who is only fancied by middle-rank club’s Everton and Stoke.

An Everton supporting smoker out in the beer garden can’t understand all the fuss however and he thinks that given the Toffees early season form the signing of Yarmolenko is well within their reach, even if Barcelona are in for the player.

Everton fans.. Do you agree with the smoker? Can you compete with Barcelona for a player? Surely he has had one too many? Are the Toffees a club on the up?
