West Ham are closing in on a double deal to sign Andriy Yarmolenko and Jack Wilshere, according to Sky sources.
It is understood the Hammers have agreed a £17.5m fee with Borussia Dortmund for Yarmolenko, with the 28-year-old winger expected to undergo a medical at the club's pre-season training base in Switzerland.
Yarmolenko, who only joined Dortmund from Dynamo Kiev last August, struggled to find his best form in Germany, netting just six goals in 26 appearances.
