Tottenham have turned their attention to Andriy Yarmolenko of Dynamo Kiev in their search for attacking reinforcements, according to a report.
The Sun claim that Mauricio Pochettino could make a move for the £18million-rated Ukrainian before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month.
The 26-year-old has caught the eye of the Spurs manager with his performances at club and international level.
The right winger scored 19 goals and supplied 14 assists in just 33 matches in all competitions last season and has already notched his first two of this season, scoring both goals in a 2-0 win over Kapaty Lviv.
The 6’2 winger has won three Ukrainian Premier Leagues with Dynamo and twice been named the Ukranian Premier League player of the year, in 2011 and 2014.
