Andriy Yarmolenko: Ukraine star

Andriy Yarmolenko is reportedly at loggerheads with his current club Dynamo Kiev as Tottenham weigh up an £18m move for the winger.

According to local sources in the Ukraine, the 26-year-old refused to take part in Kiev’s recent league encounter with Stal Kamianske and, although he returned to the squad for the weekend match against Volyn, his relationship with the club is said to be on the verge of breaking down completely.

Mauricio Pochettino is eager to add a winger to his squad before the transfer window closes and have recently re-opened talks with Marseille wide man Georges-Kevin Nkoudou after the £11m deal initially collapsed.

Tottenham were also said to be keeping tabs on Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater, but are resigned to admit defeat with the Premier League winner poised to sign a new contract with the Foxes.
