The Dynamo Kiev man is wanted across Europe this summer.
They reported that a £15 million move had been agreed but then, a matter of days later, Sky Sports claimed Everton’s interest was dead in the water.
Now it would seem he has a bigger net hovering around him.
The report from Sport in Spain claims that Barcelona have identified Yarmolenko and Celta Vigio attacker Nolito as potential replacements for Pedro – who recently made the switch to Chelsea.
Of course if he did sign he would not be able to play for Barca until January, because of their current transfer embargo.
Everton need a new winger and one with the class of Yarmolenko would have been perfect. At the moment they have Kevin Mirallas, Gerard Deulofeu and Aiden McGeady for the wide places – but all three have recently had bad luck with injuries.
But it is becoming increasingly apparent that Yarmolenko will not be that man.
