Arsenal reportedly add Gent's Roman Yaremchuk to their transfer shortlist for the summer, but the Belgian side are demanding a fee of €20m (£17.3m) for the striker.

Arsenal are reportedly weighing up a summer move for Gent forward Roman Yaremchuk.

The Ukraine international has struck 15 times in the Jupiler Pro League this term, as well as providing five assists, and he is believed to be a wanted man ahead of the reopening of the transfer window.

Gent are already rumoured to have rejected a bid from Sporting Lisbon for Yaremchuk last summer, despite him being keen to secure a move elsewhere, and the Belgian side have reportedly slapped a €20m (£17.3m) price tag on his head.

Now, Het Laatste Nieuws reports that Arsenal have added the 25-year-old to their watchlist, as the futures of current forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are still up in the air.

Yaremchuk is tied down to Gent until 2025, though, so the Belgian side can afford to play hardball over a fee, but the striker is understood to be aware of the Gunners' interest and will be allowed to leave for the right price.

Arsenal have also been linked with a move for Celtic's Odsonne Edouard in their striker search, while Folarin Balogun is reportedly set to commit his future to the North London club after a protracted contract saga.
