Reports have emerged claiming that Dynamo Kiev President Ihor Surkis has indicated that two of the club’s star players, Andriy Yarmolenko and Aleksandar Dragovic, will be allowed to leave in the summer.
Yarmolenko has been linked with a move to Premier League clubs Arsenal and Everton with the Toffees having held a long-term interest in the Ukraine international and are expected to renew their pursuit in the summer.
However, they might face competition from the Gunners, who have also been linked with a move for the attacking midfielder.
Meanwhile, West Ham United are interested in Austrian defender Dragovic. The Hammers attempted to sign the defender last summer but baulked at his price tag of £20million.
It now appears that he will be available at a reasonable price in the upcoming transfer window.
“We cannot spoil the career of Andriy Yarmolenko, Aleksandar Dragovic and others who need to be let go, and we can look for a replacement, but the primary task is to give a chance to young players,” Surkis told Ukrainian outlet Korrespondent.
