Arsenal rival Barcelona for signing of 49-cap international winger, he wants to move

Gunners join Barca in hunt for exciting wide-man.

Arsenal have reportedly made an approach to sign Dynamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko, though the player himself is holding out for a move to Barcelona.

The Ukrainian international has established himself as a top class talent in recent times, attracting the interest of Premier League sides such as Liverpool, Chelsea, and Everton.

However, Sport now claims he is hoping to join Barca in the January transfer window, with the Catalan giants on the lookout for a replacement for Pedro out wide.
