The Dnipro chief also admitted that he’s been in contact with Tottenham over a deal for Konoplyanka, suggesting Liverpool look set to lose out to their Premier League rivals this summer.
The £15m-rated Ukrainian international came extremely close to joining Brendan Rodgers’s side in Liverpool during the January transfer window.
But their deadline day bid for Konoplyanka failed at the last minute, which has opened the door for Spurs to revive their interest.
And the north London club look like they’re winning the race for the talented wide-man - at least according to Kolomoyskyi.
“I have contact with the Tottenham president,” he said as reported by Goal.com. “I am talking with him.
“He is interested in Konoplyanka. We are in the stage of negotiations and are perhaps close to signing a contract if Yevhen agrees.
“I would choose Tottenham - London - not Liverpool. There are matches only once or twice a week, and at other times he will still need somewhere to live. I believe London life is preferable to Liverpool.”
Liverpool fans must be wondering what it will take to seal a high profile transfer - they have been linked with, and then beaten to, a number of top targets since last summer.
Mohamed Salah, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Willian were all strongly linked with Anfield before deciding to sign elsewhere.
Could Spurs be set to add Konoplyanka to that list this summer?
