Everton target Andriy Yarmolenko insists he would prefer to make a move to Goodison Park, than play second fiddle at European champions Barcelona.

The 26-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent times, with Everton ready to firm up their admiration for the player fearing his valuation will rise after the European Championship finals next summer.

The Ukraine international has been heavily linked with the Spanish giants following some impressive performances in the Champions League.

But when asked who we would prefer to play for, Yarmolenko told Ukrainian news outlet Futbol: “It is better to play at Everton.

“Of course you can go to Barcelona, take a cool selfie with [Lionel] Messi, put the images on Instagram and get a million likes and be pleased with yourself.

“But I’m not one of those.

“For me it is important to play matches.

“If I play, the next day I am all calm and smile. If I missed the game and lay in the house, I immediately run into a quarrel.

“If I do not play twice a week, I have nowhere to throw out the emotions and energy. My family will go mad.”
