Arsenal eyeing move for 15-goals Ukrainian forward

By | April 19, 2021

Arsenal are reportedly planning to make a summer move for Gent attacker Roman Yaremchuk.

The Ukraine international has managed to found back of the net 15 times in the Jupiler Pro League this season, as well as providing five assists in the process, and he is believed to be a wanted man ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.

Gent are already rumoured to have turned down a bid from Sporting Lisbon for Yaremchuk last summer, despite him being keen to secure a move elsewhere, and the Belgian team have reportedly slapped a €20m (£17.3m) price tag for his siganture.

Now, Het Laatste Nieuws claims that the gunners have added the 25-year-old to their watchlist, as the futures of current strikers Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette are still up in the air.

Yaremchuk is tied down to Belgian club, Gent until 2025, though, so they can afford to play hardball over a fee, however, the striker is believed to be aware of the Gunners’ interest and will be allowed to depart from the club for the right price.

The Gunners have also been rumoured with a move for Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard in their striker search, while Folarin Balogun is reportedly could make a departure from the club.
