Stamford Bridge side keen on Ukrainian international.
Chelsea are reportedly set for a late battle to sign Dynamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko according to Sports Direct News.
Jose Mourinho is interested in the highly rated 23 year old who is also said to be on Liverpool’s deadline day radar though the £20m asking price for the player does seem steep.
23 year old Yarmolenko has been a pivotal performer at the NSC Olimpiyskiy scoring 42 goals over the course of the past three seasons and providing a constant stream of assists to boot.
AC Milan are also said to be interested in Yarmolenko and whilst Mourinho does appear keen on bringing in fresh attacking options it is primarily strikers he would be looking to sign rather than wide players as the Blues boss has those in abundance, so much so that he has opted to loan out Victor Moses and new signing Christian Atsu to Liverpool and Vitesse Arnhem respectively.
Mourinho has spent wisely thus far this summer, bringing in youngsters Marco van Ginkel, Andre Schurrle and the aforementioned Atsu as well as the most experienced Samuel Eto’o and Mark Schwarzer as well as Brazilian Willian.
