Liverpool have been installed as the favourites to sign long-time Everton target Andriy Yarmolenko.

The Ukraine international had his odds slashed from betting company Bet Victor on Thursday evening to 2/1 to make a sensational move to Anfield.

The Dynamo Kiev star has long been linked with a move to the Premier League, but the 26-year-old is yet to get his move.

Everton have been long-term admirers of the Euro 2016 ace, who played in all three Ukraine games at the tournament.

The Toffees are 4/1 to land Yarmolenko, while Leicester are also priced at 2/1.

Ukraine were embarrassed as they lost all three games in the group stages and were dumped out of the tournament.

Liverpool remain in the market for players, and are said to have one eye on stealing Alexander Lacazette from Arsenals clutches.

The Anfield club are close to selling wideman Jordan Ibe for £15million after they agreed a deal with Bournemouth for the youngster.

ESPN reported in May that Everton were prepared to finally sign the 26-year-old, having been linked with him on a fairly regular basis in the past.

However, it is unknown if new Everton boss Ronald Koeman wants him at Goodison Park.

In other Liverpool news, their Premier League rivals have placed a £13million bid for a player targeted by both them and West Ham.
