Everton are in the race to make a stunning swoop for Ukrainian sensation Andriy Yarmolenko, according to a report.
The Sun claim the cash-rich Merseyside club are among a cluster of Premier League clubs keeping close tabs on the winger, whose current deal at Dynamo Kiev is worth £100,000-a-week.
It is said that Yarmolenko could finally be heading to the Premier League after being regularly linked with a transfer to England in recent seasons.
The Sun report he could be available for a bargain £9million price even though he is at his peak and his contract with the Ukraine outfit runs until the summer of 2020.
Everton and city rivals Liverpool have both reportedly come close to signing the right-sided attacker in the past, while Tottenham and Stoke are also waiting in the wings.
Yarmolenko has an excellent track record at Kiev, where he has spent his entire top-flight career, scoring 119 goals and supplying 81 assists in 314 matches.
In 19 matches in all competitions this season, the 66-times international has scored five goals and supplied four assists, with three of his set-ups coming in the Champions League.
