Arsenal and Dynamo Kyiv agreed on Andriy Yarmolenko’s transfer, goal.com reports.
The transfer sum totaled GBP 23 mln. However, managers of the Ukrainian club insisted that the 26-year-old Ukrainian winger stays in Kyiv until the end of the season. So, Yarmolenko will leave Dynamo in summer 2016.
Previously, the Kyiv team’s President Ihor Surkis said he’d expected Yarmolenko to support his club in the game against Manchester City. The teams will face each other in the round of the last 16 of UEFA Champions League. The first leg is to take place on February 24 in Kyiv.
Earlier, Bild reported that Yarmolenko is on the list of scouts of many European teams, including Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Everton. Borussia negotiated with Dynamo on the issue, offering 30 million Euros, but the talks failed.
In the current season, Andriy Yarmolenko played 20 matches for Dynamo in Ukraine’s Premier League and the Champions League, scoring 10 goals and 8 assists.
