Report: Tottenham table bid for Dynamo Kiev’s Andriy Yarmolenko

Tottenham WHL

The Ukrainian winger has been linked to a Premier League switch this summer.

Tottenham have officially launched a bid for Ukrainian winger Andriy Yarmolenko, according to Kiev-based site 1927.Kiev.

The Dynamo man has been heavily linked with a move to Stoke, by the likes of talkSPORT, but Tottenham appear to have entered the fray and reportedly presented a £10.6 million offer to the Ukrainians this afternoon.

The 25-year old enjoyed a productive campaign last year netting 14 goals in 26 league appearances, and four in 10 Europa League outings.

Operating on the right flank and cutting in onto his favoured left foot, Yarmolenko possesses bags of skill and a fierce strike.

At over 6’2, he is unusually tall for a winger and as such, provides a considerable physical presence as well as a decent turn of pace.

Spurs' interest in the Ukrainian makes sense given the underwhelming options currently available on the club’s right side.

Erik Lamela showed signs of improvement towards the end of last season and will be looking to kick on, but as yet has failed to provide anywhere near enough return on the money Spurs paid for him two years ago.

Andros Townsend, on the other hand, has consistently flattered to deceive and has been unable to transfer his international form to club level.

Yarmolenko could prove to be just the man to reinvigorate the stuttering Spurs attack and the club will be eager to get a deal over the line as soon as possible.
