West Ham considering move for Yevhen Konoplyanka

Published Add your comment

West Ham are preparing an ambitious move for Ukrainian international, Yevhen Konoplyanka, despite interest from Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United.

All three clubs have expressed an interest in the winger, with Liverpool coming closest to signing the player in the January transfer window, only for the deal to break down at the last minute.


However, West Ham are thought to be the only club willing to match the £12million release clause in the player’s contract.

The winger scored 13 goals and provided nine assists in the Ukrainian league last season, prompting West Ham to consider paying the £12million to land the 24-year-old.

West Ham have been linked with a number of impressive signings this summer, having already completed deals to bring in Mauro Zarate from Argentine club Velez Sarsfield and Cheikou Kouyate from Anderlecht.


However, the player is reluctant to join a club that will not be playing European football next season and may opt to reject West Ham and stay with Dnipro, who will be playing in the Champions League next season.

The Hammers have also been linked with moves for Raul Meireles, Jefferson Montero and Eder Balanta in what is proving to be a busy transfer window for the club, as Sam Allardyce attempts to reshape his squad following an underwhelming season.
