Everton fans took to Twitter during Ukraine’s clash with Slovenia to once again voice their opinion in favour of talented winger Andriy Yarmolenko joining the club.
The 26-year-old has netted 74 goals in 185 league matches for Kiev, a quite stunning record considering he is largely a winger or an outside forward who primarily creates for his teammates.
On Saturday, he was given another opportunity to showcase his talents to the world by means of his country’s Euro 2016 qualification playoff tie against Slovenia.
In what many thought would be a close encounter, Ukraine dominated throughout and took a commanding 2-0 first-leg lead with Yarmolenko opening the scoring in Lviv after 22 minutes.
As he continued to pull the strings in the second half, Everton fans tuning in were left ruing what they missed out on though hope still remains of a potential deal in the future.
Writing on Twitter after the game, the Toffees’ support made it clear he remains a popular transfer option.
Yarmolenko is a different breed. I'd happily swap him for Mirallas at Everton— AJ (@ToffeeAJ21) November 14, 2015
Everton need a Yarmolenko far more than a new GK this is a fact— Kyle Redmond (@_KyleRedmond) November 14, 2015
I would go to Ukraine myself to pick him up to get Yarmolenko to Everton— Dan Jones (@danjoness_) November 14, 2015
