Christian Benteke transfer: Liverpool to trigger £32.5m release clause for Aston Villa star attacker
The Ukraine international has been heavily linked with a Premier League, with the Reds and Spurs previously linked to the £20m-rated attacker.
Yarmolenko helped lead Dynamo Kiev to the league title this season, scoring 14 goals in 24 appearances to help the Ukrainian giants to their 27th domestic triumph.
The 25-year-old told Ukrainian website Profutbal that it was time for a move away from Kiev.
“I think that right now is the perfect time to change clubs,” Yarmolenko is quoted as saying by The Daily Mail.
“I promised that until we become champions, I was not going anywhere. I kept my promise, we became champions.
“The president knows that I want to leave, I have repeatedly spoken about this.”
Both Liverpool and Tottenham are keen to bolster their respective squads to make a push for Champions League football next season, and Yarmolenko has certainly showed enough against big Premier League opposition in the Europa League to suggest he would make a good signing for either side.
