Andriy Yarmolenko has spent his entire professional career in Ukraine, most of which has been with current side Dynamo Kyiv. He is one of Ukraine’s most decorated players, winning three Ukrainian Premier League titles, two Ukrainian Cups and a plethora of individual honours – including three Ukrainian Footballer of the Year awards.

Andriy Yarmolenko’s versatility allows him to play either as a winger or centre-forward, presenting an abundance of options for Borussia Dortmund boss Peter Bosz should the move transpire.

He has 137 goals in 341 appearances with Dynamo Kyiv and has translated his striking acumen to the international stage, where he is the second all-time top-scorer (29 goals in 69 caps) in Ukrainian national team history.

Yarmolenko has made a bright start to the 2017/18 campaign, netting three times from five appearances as Dynamo Kyiv sit in 2nd place after six games in the Ukrainian Premier League.
