Arsenal ‘close to agreeing terms for signing of goalscoring winger & Barcelona target’ (not Nolito)

Gunners close in on deal for superb goalscoring winger.

Arsenal are said to be close to agreeing terms for the signing of Dynamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko ahead of the January transfer window.

The Gunners are looking weak in attack so far this season, with doubts over players like Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott to provide the goals needed to make Arsene Wenger’s side genuine title contenders.

Yarmolenko has shown superb form in his time in Ukraine and could be the answer, with the Metro claiming Arsenal have already held talks over a move for him this January.

Barcelona have also been linked with the 25-year-old, but it seems they may instead be focusing on beating Arsenal to another of their top targets, Celta Vigo forward Nolito.
