West Ham United have made a £17.5m bid for Borussia Dortmund forward Andriy Yarmolenko, according to Sky sources.

One source claims the deal for Yarmolenko - who joined the German side from Dynamo Kiev for £23m last summer - is subject to a medical and work permit.

Yarmolenko made 30 appearances for Dortmund last season, of which 21 were starts.

The 28-year-old - who has 76 caps for Ukraine - scored six goals to help Dortmund to a fourth-placed finish in last season's Bundesliga.

West Ham are also still in talks with Sporting Lisbon over the £20m signing of midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
