Konoplyanka prefers Tottenham to Liverpool

Ukraine outfit Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk have revealed talks are underway with Tottenham, about a potential transfer of winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.

Both Spurs and Liverpool are reportedly interested in Ukraine international Konoplyanka, 24, who has 36 caps to his name for the eastern European nation.

Dnipro chairman Igor Kolomoyskyi said he has been in discussions with Spurs opposite number Daniel Levy, regarding Konoplyanka, and claims Tottenham lead the race for the impressive attacker's signature.

"I have contact with the Tottenham president. I am talking with him," Kolomoysky told Ukrainian TV channel 2+2.

"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."

Konoplyanka scored against Spurs in the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie in February, before the north London outfit responded to advance on aggregate.



Well I wanted us to get him but I don't think he's d kind of player we need now. He's work rate is poor, he only attacks and doesn't back track if he looses the ball. Finally he has no ambition to want to go to spurs and not Liverpool. He reminds me of Salah, who hasn't started a game for Chelsea but is warming their bench.

I think hes the sort of player who does nt want to live in bin dipper paradise...Spurs no ambition...Mxxron...one good year after 50 of sweet FA..and you are ambitious....?? You remind me of a thxxk scouser..oh sorry you are....Jealous cos we get all ya players eh...Siggy etc....better hope you keep Suarez or ya fxxced bindipper.

Like Spurs are heading in the right direction. Another flop year from a flip team . Any player that picks spurs over liverpool at the moment because of were he wants to live , is not the kind of player you want
