Arsenal Set To Rival Wolves For This Promising Forward: What Will He Bring To North London?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, HLN (subscription required) has claimed that Arsenal are set to rival Wolverhampton Wanderers for KAA Gent forward Roman Yaremchuk during this summer transfer window. It is believed that both Gunners and Wolves are eager to secure the signature of the Ukrainian striker at the end of this campaign (translated by The Boot Room).

Yaremchuk’s Impressive Form In The Jupiler Pro League This Season

The Lviv-born sensation is having a productive season in Belgian football as he has been responsible for banging in some important goals as the focal point of the Gent attack. Yaremchuk has appeared in 36 matches for the Belgian outfit this term, finding the back of the net on 18 occasions and providing six assists in all competitions.

The Ukrainian sensation has caught the eye by averaging 2.9 shots, 1.1 key passes and 0.6 dribbles per game in the Jupiler Pro League this season. He has also taken care of the ball when interchanging possession with his teammates in the final third after making 79.8% of his attempted passes in the Belgian top-flight (stats via whoscored).

The former Dynamo Kyiv youngster is under contract at the Ghelamco Arena until the summer of 2025, so it might take a big offer from the Gunners to convince Gent to sell their prized asset before the start of the new campaign.

What Will The Ukrainian Frontman Bring To The Emirates Stadium?

Yaremchuk has decent pace in his locker that allows him to stretch the opposition defence by making some late runs in behind them. He is proficient at generating a yard of space for himself to get a few shots in on-target. Now that the Ukrainian talent has proven his worth as a prolific goal-scorer, it makes sense for the Gunners to launch a move to bring him to North London this summer.

Yaremchuk could potentially bring more goals and assists to Mikel Arteta’s frontline at the Emirates Stadium. Furthermore, standing at 1.91m, he is a towering presence inside the opposition penalty box and possesses a real threat from offensive set-pieces. Yaremchuk is also versatile enough to operate in any position across the frontline. He is primarily a centre-forward but can also fill in as a winger on either flank if required. Hence, we can expect him to add another dimension and more variety to Arsenal’s attack as he is a hard-working forward who is eager to prove his worth at the highest level.

At 25, the 22-time Ukraine international is about to enter his prime years, so he will fancy playing his best football at North London if Arteta can find a way to bring him on board when the transfer window commences later this year.
