Premier League Trio Tempted By Ukrainian Starlet

Dnipro wide-man Yevhen Konoplyanka has been attracting the interest of clubs in England with Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal trailing the 22-year-old according to Talk Sport.

Konoplyanka is set to represent co-hosts Ukraine in the forthcoming European Championships and is expected to play a large part in their campaign. A string of solid performances in the tournament could well see his value raised and competition for his signature from elsewhere increase.

The winger possesses terrific pace and has improved rapidly since his league debut at the age of 17. According to the report he aspires to play in one of Europe’s top leagues but the excellent financial position of Dnipro will mean that he will not come cheap.

Historically Ukrainian players have struggled for success in the Premier League with Sergiy Rebrov, Andriy Shevchenko and Anriy Voronin all struggling to make an impact during their spells in England.

Konoplyanka however is of a different mould and his willingness to run at players and whilst also offering versatility will prove an attractive proposition for the trio.

Sir Alex Ferguson will be eager to add depth in the wide areas with Nani performing inconsistently last season and Arsene Wenger will also look to improve the quality of his attacking options. Chelsea could make an offer as they continue the summer overhaul of their squad with the likes of Marko Marin and Eden Hazard already set to make their mark at Stamford Bridge next season.
