Arsenal and Manchester United chase winger who scored this wondergoal against England

Could a Premier League side get hold of the man who scored this pearler past Joe Hart?

Several reports this week have suggested that both Arsenal and Manchester United are ready to make a move for talented Ukrainian international winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.

Now we as England fans should know that name all too well because the talented winger has certainly caught the eye against The Three Lions over the past 12 months.

A talented right-footed player who often plays from the left he has been a star performer for the Ukrainian national side recently; including in games against England.

And perhaps the most memorable moment of his career so far has to be this wondergoal he smashed beyond Joe Hart at Wembley in a World Cup qualifier against our boys…

Dubbed the ‘Ukrainian Messi’ he is certainly a talent and was the key man as Dnipro Dniproprovestsk had an excellent season last year; both domestically and on the continent.

But he is now said to be looking to leave Ukraine in order to take his career to the next level.

At 23-years-old he could be right in that thinking; a move abroad could certainly help him take his game to the next level and he is certainly a player that would fit the mould at both Premier League clubs.

His agent has also recently asserted the players desire to leave the club this summer when speaking to talkSPORT recently:

''Yevhen is very highly rated amongst the top teams in England and Germany. The question is simply whether these clubs can meet Dnipro’s valuation and the player's expectations”.

The only problem might be his valuation. Dnipro are in a good financial situation and have absolutely no pressing need to make a sale; so he could cost a fair bob. In fact an asking price of £13 million has been quoted.

But if he can score more goals like that past Joe Hart then he would be welcome at both clubs.

Would you like to see Konoplyanka at your club this summer?
