According to Het Laatste Nieuws, Arsenal are interested in FAA Gent’s striker, Roman Yaremchuk.
Arsenal very clearly seem to be looking to bring in a new striker this summer. Despite Folarin Balogun renewing his Arsenal contract (still no announcement), Arsenal have been linked with a number of forwards, Yaremchuk being the latest.
With 18 goals and 6 assists in 36 games, the 25-year-old apparently wanted a move last summer but his club were able to convince him to stay for one more season. The Belgians will allow Yaremchuk to leave should an appropriate offer be forthcoming. That means something in excess of €20m even though his current value sits at around £11.7m (€13.5m).
The Belgian report also states that there have been no concrete moves from Arsenal for the 6ft 2 striker, merely that he is a player Arsenal have on a ‘list’.
Yaremchuk is under contract until 2025 after signing an eight-year deal in 2017 when the Ukranian international (seven goals in 22 caps) signed from Dynamo Kyiv for £1.8m.
