Serie A giants chasing Konoplyanka

Liverpool, Arsenal, West Ham and Stoke City have all been rumoured with moves for Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, Roma and Lazio are now the latest teams to be interested in a move.

Since the complications stopping his move to Liverpool occurred in January 2014, many teams across Europe have been tracking the newest superstar in Eastern Europe.

Konoplyanka is currently valued at around £15million which is slim considering he's 25 and a real quality player. It's often that transfers from Russia, Ukraine and Poland fail but many realise that Konoplyanka is a real diamond in the rough.

His style of play would develop more in the Premier League or maybe the Bundesliga. His pace in Serie A, a league which is built on counter-attacks, could be a real problem for opponents.

The key man for club and country, the 25 year old can't stay in the Ukrainian Premier League any longer if his career is to move onto the next step. Now also the main man for the Ukraine national team, a big move has been on the cards and the teams rumoured with him are getting bigger and bigger.

With both Lazio and Roma in the Champions League, Konoplyanka will now test himself in Europe's biggest competition as well as one of the biggest leagues. He's used to the pressures of European competition after recently helping Dnipro to the Europa League final, only narrowly losing out 3-2 to Sevilla.

A big move has been brewing for a long time for Konoplyanka and now it looks to be finally happening.
