German newspaper Bild claim that Borussia Dortmund are set to land Dynamo Kiev’s Yarmolenko. The newspaper claim that a cut-price £8.7 million deal has been agreed by both clubs for the services of the player.
The imminent arrival of Yarmolenko at the Westfalenstadion has paved the way for an exit for pacy attacker, Pier- Emerick Aubameyang whoi has reportedly been attracting the interest of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. Wenger has been on the look out for a striker to bolster his attack ahead of the new season but the club has since failed in their attempts at luring world class forwards Karim Benzema of Real Madrid, Edinson Cavani of Paris Saint- Germain and Gonzalo Higuain of Napoli to the Emirate Stadium this summer. However, the arrival of Yarmolenko would ensure that Dortmund are open to discussing a deal with Arsenal for his service.
Gunners boss, Wenger has even confirmed that the club are looking to sign player. ” We are open and are in the transfer market ” , he said. He further revealed that only an exceptional player would be signed ( Aubameyang is definitely special).
” If we find an exceptional player in any sectoe we will do it, at the moment, I don’t know if something will happen ot not”.
