EVERTON may have taken a step closer to signing Dynamo Kiev’s Andriy Yarmolenko after his agent was spotted at Goodison Park…again!
Toffees supporters were whipped into a frenzy when the winger’s representative, Vadim Shabily, posted a picture of himself at the stadium and alongside Roberto Martinez last year.
Hopes have again been raised after the Liverpool Echo revealed Shabily flew from the Ukraine to watch Everton beat Manchester City in the Capital One Cup semi-final.
The Daily Mail claim Everton are willing to meet the winger’s hefty £21m valuation to secure a deal in January.
Recently asked if negotiations took place with Everton, Shabliy explained: “Of course. But I will not say much on this subject. In general it is a good club, good team, I liked it very much.”
Norwich look to be closing in on the £8m signing of Steven Naismith, who was omitted from Everton’s squad that dispatched Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday.
The Merseyside outfit could use the fee to finance a deal for Yarmolenko.
