Ukranian club Dnipro admit they are preparing for the possible departure of in-demand winger Yevhen Konoplyanka this summer.

The 24-year-old has been linked with Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United in recent months and was close to joining the Reds in January before the move collapsed at the last minute.

Konoplyanka has a buy-out clause in the region of £12million and Dnipro sporting director Andrey Stetsenko admits the player’s future is far from certain.

“Our scouts are working to find his replacement. Sooner or later Konoplyanka will leave Dnipro,” Stetsenko said in the Guardian.

“We know that English, Spanish and German clubs are monitoring the situation and are interested in the player. But we have had no offers.

“His contract has a buyout clause worth €15m for foreign clubs. For Ukrainian clubs the buyout is more.

“Konoplyanka spoke to me and said that if he did not have offers from foreign clubs in the future it would not be a problem. He would stay with us with pleasure and continue to play for Dnipro.”

While United are reported to have sent scouts to watch Konoplyanka in recent weeks, Stetsenko suggested Liverpool’s interest has cooled.

“After negotiations in the winter Liverpool did not contact us further about Konoplyanka,” he said.
