Arsenal agree fee for Yarmolenko


According to Ukrainian publication Sport, Arsenal have reached agreement with Dynamo Kyiv for the signing of Andriy Yarmolenko.

The report claims that Yarmolenko will join the Gunners for a fee of £23million, however the 26-year-old will move to North London in the summer as the club president Ihor Surkis wants to keep the winger at the club for the Champions League, were the Ukrainian champions face Manchester City in the last 16.

Yarmolenko has been widely reported with a move to Arsenal this window, however fellow Premier League team Everton were always seen as the favourites to sign the highly rated attacker, however the Toffees’ look to have lost the race for Yarmolenko.

Yarmolenko has been one of the best players in Ukraine this season, where the winger has scored 13 goals and assisted another eight in 22 appearances this season.

Moving onto another winger, Arsenal are set to nab Spanish winger Nolito from Celta Vigo according to Sport after a move to Barcelona collapsed for Nolito.

The 29-year-old attacker is yet to sign a new deal with Celta Vigo, who could look to cash in on the fine form of Nolito that has earned him a call-up to the Spanish national team.

Nolito has a reported £13.4m buyout clause in his contract and has scored eight goals in 16 appearances this season.
