The most frustrating periods in the life of a typical Arsenal supporter is usually the closing stages of the transfer market as the club usually lost out on some of their transfer targets and seal surprise deals on the closing day of the market for player not linked with club.
Yarmolenko, 25, was long linked with a move away from the Ukrainian champions FC Dynamo Kyiv, with the likes of Dortmund, Barcelona and even Arsenal in line for the player’s signature, as reported in Italy.
Nonetheless, TMW are now claiming that Liverpool are on the verge of activating the player’s release clause of €20 million – this must be surprising as the player wasn’t linked with Liverpool all summer, but Arsenal, who are mostly in need of the player, have remained reluctant to pursue a player that can bolster that forward line with his skills.
The EPL defending champion and other Arsenal rivals have bolstered their squad this season with more than one addition each, if Arsenal are to regain the lost glory of winning the Premier League title, they have to go one or two players better than the addition of Petr Cech.
The Gunners have been unable to score goals this season with just two goals this season and the concerns are Wenger paying blind eyes to the need of bolstering his forward line.
