Arsenal Join Race Liverpool Target

£12 million winger attracting plenty of interest.

Check in to Brazil vs Croatia

There is set to be a fierce battle for the signing of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk winger Yevhen Konoplyanka this summer as Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in a player who is already on the radar of Liverpool and Manchester United, reports ESPN.

The Ukraine international was very close to joining Liverpool in January but the Reds could not quite get the deal done before the end of the transfer window. However with a £12 million buyout clause in his contract with Dnipro, it would be a huge surprise if he does not move away from Ukraine this summer.

Dnipro have braced themselves for the exit of their star man and the talented attacker has made it clear he is keen to test himself on a bigger stage.

Manchester United have reportedly sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old whilst Arsenal and PSG are ready to pounce if a deal can be done. The Parisians clearly have the funds to bring in a player for £12 million, but with UEFA keeping tabs on their activities regarding Financial Fair Play, they may not be able to sign any more players this year.

Konoplyanka is already a fixture in the Ukrainian national team at 24-years-old and has won 36 caps for his country, scoring eight goals.
