Manchester City to muscle in on Ukrainian Liverpool target?

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool could be about to be thwarted in any move for transfer target Andriy Yarmolenko, as Manchester City are reportedly ready to enter the race to sign him.

According to TMW, the Citizens sent their scouts to watch the Dynamo Kiev winger in the recent 0-0 draw against Valencia in the Europa League, which meant the club from Ukraine crashed out of the competition.

Liverpool reportedly made a bid for the 24-year-old in the summer but nothing materialised and they ended up turning their attentions to his international teammate Yevhen Konoplyanka, but that potential transfer also fell through.

Now, any plans for the Anfield club to resurrect a move for Yarmolenko will be seriously threatened by the involvement of Manchester City, who are fresh from a League Cup final win over Sunderland.

Brendan Rodgers' side have been playing brilliantly and are currently second in the Premier League, though the Citizens will go top if they win their two games in hand.

The Reds have considerable history behind them and qualification for the Champions League will make them more attractive, but they are unable to compare with the spending power of Abu Dhabi owned Manchester City and would almost certainly come off second best in a bidding war.
