Borussia Dortmund have done swift business in completing the signing of Dynamo Kiev winger Andrey Yarmolenko for €25 million.
Yarmolenko joins following the exit of Dembele to Barcelona and signs a four-year contract with the bundesliga giants.
The 27-year-old will wear the no. 9 shirt and will be ending his ten-and-a-half-year stay at Dynamo.
“Andriy is a player we have been pursuing for a long time and who is on top level both at club level and in the service of the Ukrainian national team for football,” Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc told the club’s website.
Yarmolenko himself added: “I am very grateful that Dynamo Kiev has fulfilled my dream of being able to switch to a big European club!
“I will work hard in every training to help BVB achieve its highest goals – that’s what I always do.”
