Report: Liverpool-linked winger in talks with PSG

Liverpool-linked winger Andriy Yarmolenko has been touted for a move to PSG.

Liverpool have big competition if they decide to pursue Andriy Yarmolenko. report that PSG are targeting the Ukrainian winger for a potential summer transfer.

The French side are in talks with his agent, but it is his representative who perhaps gives Liverpool one little bit of hope.

Yarmolenko's agent is Mino Raiola, whose star client is Mario Balotelli. This could yet help the Reds in terms of making contact, while it may suit the agent to see two of his players link up.

The Star reported last month that Liverpool are interested in a move for the Dynamo Kiev winger.

The 25-year-old impressed in Kiev's recent defeat of Everton in the Europa League, scoring in the Ukrainian side's second leg victory.

Yarmolenko has one year left on his contract and has a stunning 11 goals and 18 assists for Kiev this season, making this summer the perfect time to cash in.

He would be a cheaper alternative to the French champions than attempting to sign Manchester United's Angel di Maria after he has had just one season in England, an option they were reported by The Mirror this week to be exploring.

For Liverpool to seal a deal, finishing in the Champions League qualifying spots is likely to be a crucial factor.
