Report: Hammers bid for Bundesliga winger

The Hammers are this morning being reported as having bid 17.5m bid for Borussia Dortmund forward Andriy Yarmolenko.

The report comes from Sky where it is claimed that one of their insiders says the deal is subject to a medical and work permit.

He joined the Bundesliga team German from Dynamo Kiev for £23m last summer making  appearances for Dortmund last season, of which 21 were starts.

 The 28-year-old – who has 76 caps for Ukraine – scored six goals to help Dortmund to a fourth-placed finish in last season’s Bundesliga.

Meanwhile we are  still in talks with Sporting Lisbon over the £20m signing of midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

  1. Not a good idea surely not a Pellegrini pick sounds more like Sullivan as he’s cheaper than real quality like Anderson. Yarmolenko has lost his mojo nowhere near good enough nowadays. Wonder your thoughts Hugh.

  2. Lets not mess about Fernandes is worth 25 mil. He’ll be worth 2x 3x in a year or two.

  3. If Fernandes was available for another £5m the deal would have been done already £25m is a fraction of his worth so purely as an assett let alone a player we would have signed him. Yarmolenko was sold to Dortmund for £23.5m last year I think ? This doesn’t seem to make sense does it that they would offload him for £6m less ?
