West Ham told to increase Konoplyanka bid

West Ham have been told by Dnipro to increase their £9.5m offer for Ukraine winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Konoplyanka is said to have a £12m release clause in his contract and Dnipro are not interested in selling him for any less than is stipulated. The Premier League club are now understood to be mulling over their next step.

The 24-year-old has previously been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool and was close to moving to Anfield in January. The Reds met Konoplyanka’s release clause but Ihor Kolomoyskyi, the Dnipro president, refused to sign off on the move.

Neither Liverpool nor Spurs have resumed their interest in Konoplyanka, with the Telegraph noting that Liverpool are close to signing Benfica’s Lazar Markovic, and have already signed Southampton’s Adam Lallana.

But Konoplyanka could push for a move to English football, although it remains to be seen if West Ham could match his £60,000 per week wages.

Konoplyanka has 36 caps for Ukraine, scoring eight goals, including a September 2012 goal against England at Wembley. He broke into the national team in 2010, and has spent his entire senior career with Dnipro, making more than 100 appearances.
