According to Eurosport Turkey Ukrainian winger Yevhen Konoplyanka has agreed a deal with Tottenham Hotspur. Konoplyanka, dubbed as the Ukrainian Messi, has been one of the most talked names during the recent transfer windows.

The skillful 25 year old Dnipro star has been heavily linked to both Sevilla and Stoke City and Liverpool in earlier seasons, but has preferred a move to White Hart Lane.

Konoplyanka appeared for Dnipro for 21 times during the last season in Ukrainian Premier League and scored 7 goals. He also scored once and assisted 3 goals in Europa League.

Konoplyanka has an impressive average of 2.3 shots per game. He dribbled past opponents on an average of 2.3 per game and made 1.5 key passes every match. He is fouled very often with and average of 3.3 per game.

With just days left on his Dnipro contract, it appears Yevhen Konoplyanka is travelling to England in order to complete a medical at Spurs.

He is expected to sign a contract at Tottenham Hotspur in the “coming days” according to Eurosport Turkey. 

Konoplyanka was heavily linked with Liverpool during last summer and was close to join the Reds but the owner of Dnipro blocked the transfer in the closing hours of the transfer window. It is surprising to see that Liverpool had not approached him again this window when he was a free agent.

Konoplyanka helped Dnipro to reach the finals of Europa League final last season where they lost to Sevilla.

Konoplyanka will have to contest with the likes of Erik Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Andors Townsend for a place in the starting XI.

Konoplyanka is a regular starter for Ukraine and has appeared 45 times for his country.

With his great dribbling ability and trickery he can create nuisance to any defense and with teammates like Lamela, Eriksen and Harry Kane upfront with him, Spurs can really give big clubs a hard time this season.
