Everton are planning to make a £15m bid in an attempt to bring Dynamo Kiev forward Andriy Yarmolenko to Goodison Park, according to the Daily Express.
The Ukrainian side are keen to offload the 25-year-old during this window, the Express report, as he has just one year left on his contract, and thus, will be available for nothing next summer.
If the Toffees could pull off a deal, it would represent a big statement of intent from Roberto Martinez’s side. The Express report that Tottenham, as well as their Merseyside rivals Liverpool, are keen on Yarmolenko.
Considering that he has spent some time out on the wing, Yarmonlenko has been fairly prolific throughout his career, scoring 71 goals in 177 games.
If Everton could get this deal across the line, they would boast one of the most impressive front threes in the top flight, with Yarmolenko working alongside Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley. The pair were the main protagonists as Everton tore Southampton apart at the weekend.
