This is definitely the most interesting Arsenal transfer rumour this month, as sources in the Ukraine are reporting that the Gunners have already agreed to pay Dynamo Kiev £23million for their brilliant international winger Andriy Yarmolenko.
The big versatile Ukrainian has spent his whole career at Kiev and now he has reached his prime at 26 it seems he is now ready to progress to an even bigger League. He has already spent six years playing for the senior national side, making 50 appearances and scoring a respectable 20 goals, including two goals against Slovenia that helped his country to qualify for this summers Euro2016 Finals.
He has scored in the double figures for the last six years in the Ukrainian Premier League, but seems to be improving and has already scored 13 goals for Kiev this season in just 22 games.
The bad news is that he won’t be coming to the Emirates until after the Euros to prepare for next season, but with his size (6ft 2in) and strength he will give Wenger an extra dimension going forward in the next campaign, specially if he can replicate his goal-scoring prowess in the Premier League.
Apparently Everton were also trying to sign Yarmalenko, which could be why Wenger has moved to seal the deal early so as to stop any poachers coming in later on. I think he will be an excellent addition to the club.
