Tottenham in talks to sign Konoplyanka

Dnipro president Ihor Kolomoyskyi has revealed that Tottenham are in talks with the Ukrainian club to sign winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, according to Sky Sports.

Liverpool were poised to sign Konoplyanka back in January, only for the deal to collapse late on transfer deadline day. Despite that setback, the Merseyside club were expected to return with an improved offer for the 24-year-old this summer.

Konoplyanka was the standout player for Dnipro as they narrowly lost out to Tottenham over two legs in the first knockout round of the Europa League, and now Kolomoyskyi has said that the two clubs are in negotiations over a deal for the winger.

Also claiming that Tottenham would be a better career move for Konoplyanka, Kolomoyskyi told Ukrainian television channel 2 + 2: "I have contact with the Tottenham president. 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 Yehven 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."

Kolomoyskyi also blamed Liverpool over January’s collapsed deal, adding: "I talked with Konoplyanka. Of course, he had regrets, but [move to Liverpool] failed purely due to technical reasons.

"I'm ready to let any player leave; we can't break his sports career. But on the final day, Liverpool failed to do a deal. They failed themselves. It was purely technical reasons.

"I'm ready to let go of any player because we cannot break a career, we cannot break players' destiny."
