According to reports from Belgium, Arsenal could challenge Wolves to try and sign Gent forward, Roman Yaremchuk, during the the summer window.
HLN bring the report, suggesting that both the Gunners and Wolves are keen on the Ukranian striker. Yaremchuk, 25, has scored 15 goals this season and provided five assists in an impressive campaign.
It is claimed that Gent value Yaremchuk around the £17m mark, while it’s also suggested that Lazio could be in the mix for his signature.
Arsenal could well be on the lookout for a new forward this year. The futures of Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah remain unresolved, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been woefully out of form.
Yaremchuk, who was compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier this season for one of his goals, would certainly bring freshness to the position.
TBR View: Yaremchuk a new name on the block for Arsenal but a good player nonetheless
Normally, we’re used to seeing Arsenal linked with the same sort of players. The likes of Aouar, Isco, and others, seem to be names that crop up regularly.
However, Yaremchuk is certainly a new one. The 25-year-old has a lot of qualities for a forward player and it’s clear he knows where the net is as well.
Arsenal are bound to be busy over the summer. A striker, a new midfielder, and a defender are all likely additions. Yaremchuk, then, at just £17m, could represent a good option for Mikel Arteta.
