Report: Arsenal touted as potential destination for Euro 2020 goalscorer; £25m fee expected
Arsenal remain one of the teams who could end up signing Ukrainian star, Roman Yaremchuk, during the summer transfer window.
Yaremchuk, 25, has been impressive in the Euros so far, scoring two goals for Ukraine in Group C. Currently with Gent, the striker scored 17 league goals last season, with 23 in all competitions.
West Ham have been linked with Yaremchuk already. Calciomercato have claimed this weekend that the Hammers like what they see from the Ukraine star.
However, Goal have also claimed that Arsenal are still one of the potential destinations for Yaremchuk. The striker has apparently caught the eye of Mikel Arteta, who is looking to oversee a summer overhaul in North London.
It’s been suggested that Yaremchuk will cost around the £25m mark if Gent are to sell him. That sort of money won’t be an issue for Premier League clubs, in spite of the pandemic.
The forward averages just shy of a goal every other game in Belgium. For the Ukraine, he has scored ten times in just 26 games.
Arsenal are reportedly on the lookout for a new striker. As reported on TBR this weekend, Frankfurt striker Andre Silva is another name being mentioned.
Yaremchuk looks a player and Arsenal could do with someone like him
There’s a bit of the old school about Yaremchuk at times. He doesn’t seem to mess about, but simply knows where the back of the net is.
For all the nice footballers Arsenal have, they do need someone who can find the back of the net with conviction. The likes of Yaremchuk and Silva, then, make perfect sense.
£25m is not the biggest fee in the world for a forward either. Players go for that sort of money all the time, so for a proven goalscorer, it’s a deal worth pursuing.
Yaremchuk will likely get a move this summer. And Arsenal need to ensure they’re at least in the conversation.
