Andriy Yarmolenko - Move abroad interests Kiev forward

Chelsea target Andriy Yarmolenko says he is still interested in a move to the Premier League, despite signing a new deal at Dynamo Kiev.

Yarmolenko was reportedly scouted by Jose Mourinho in Ukraine’s 1-0 defeat to Spain earlier this month, sparking talk of a transfer to the Blues, only to sign a five-year contract extension in Kiev.

However the forward, who was also chased by Everton over the summer, insists he has not closed the door on a move abroad.

“I still want that [to test myself in the best foreign leagues]. I know that if Dynamo get really worthy offers we’ll find an option that satisfies everyone,” the 25-year-old said.

“I want the club to get good compensation for me. I could have left for free in a while, but that would have been wrong.

“I am 100 per cent a Dynamo player. Our team is like my second family. That’s why I keep doing my best to benefit the club.”

The Ukraine international appears to be one of the most sought-after players in Europe, having also been linked with a move to the likes of Barcelona, Liverpool and Arsenal.

His new contract is likely to test just how interested those clubs are, as his transfer value will have now risen considerably.
