West Ham have already signed four new players in the summer transfer window and further deals are expected to be completed imminently.
The Hammers are pushing to complete a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Ukraine international Andriy Yarmolenko, in a deal that will cost around £17.5m.
Yarmolenko, 28, only signed for the Bundesliga giants last summer but has struggled to compete for places with the likes of Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho, allowing West Ham to complete a move.
With a deal expected to be completed imminently, Yarmolenko’s agent has backed his client to succeed in the Premier League – stating he has always thought he was better suited to English football.
“I’ve always said Yarmolenko was more suited to English football than German.”
“I think everything will work out in England because besides being a good player, he’s also physically strong, and not afraid of contact, which is needed in the Premier League.”
