Andriy Yarmolenko

The vultures are said to be hovering around this talented performer who has shot to prominence with Dynamo and Ukraine in the last couple of years, with his scoring record at international level catching many an experienced managerial eye.

It has been hard to judge Ukraine’s progress during a two year stint when they have not been involved in competitive internationals in the run up to Euro 2012, but Yarmolenko has staked his claim for a starting spot in Oleh Blokhin’s side this summer by scoring in friendly games against Uruguay, Bulgaria, Germany and Israel.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move for this rising star and if Yarmolenko takes Euro 2012 by storm, the experienced Frenchman would not be alone in courting the services of one of the brightest stars in Ukrainian football. At home on the left wing or as a striker, he has the potential to emerge as a star in front of his home fans this summer.
