Which finite subsets $S \subset \mathbb{N}$ have the following property : every countable group $G$ embeds into a finitely generated group $\Gamma$ such that $H_i(\Gamma;\mathbb{Z})=0$ for all $i \in S$.

The only positive answer I know here is that $S=\{1\}$ works since every countable group can be embedded into a simple group. I don't know any negative answers.

I'm especially interested in singleton sets $S$ (in particular, $S=\{2\}$ and $S=\{3\}$).

Also, is the question easier if I restrict myself to finitely generated or finitely presentable groups?
