Yarmolenko, Wilshere set for Hammers

London, Jul 8 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 7/9/2018 12:59:23 AM IST
West Ham are closing in on a double deal to sign Andriy Yarmolenko and Jack Wilshere.
It is understood the Hammers have agreed a £17.5m fee with Borussia Dortmund for Yarmolenko, with the 28-year-old winger expected to undergo a medical at the club’s pre-season training base in Switzerland.
Yarmolenko, who only joined Dortmund from Dynamo Kiev last August, struggled to find his best form in Germany, netting just six goals in 26 appearances.
The Ukraine international was a prolific scorer in Kiev, scoring 137 goals in 341 matches.
It is understood that Wilshere is expected to complete the formalities on a switch to West Ham in the coming days.
The 26-year-old midfielder is available on a free transfer after he officially left Arsenal following the expiration of his contract.
Wilshere had previously attracted interest from Turkish side Fenerbahce. However West Ham are facing competition in their bid to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
West Ham have offered £25m for the Portugal international, but Lisbon are also considering offers from Monaco and Atletico Madrid.
