It's not often that Ukrainians make the move to the Premier League, with players such as Oleg Luzhny, Andriy Voronin and Andriy Shevchenko all failing in English football.
However, that track record hasn't deterred Premier League clubs from pursuing Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.
Dnipro may well live to regret rejected that money though, with Konoplyanka's contract set to expire in the summer of 2015 - meaning he can agree a pre-contract agreement with any club in January.
With clubs now aware that Konoplyanka could be had for free, expect the battle for his signature to heat up once again; which has prompted Inter Milan to offer him a deal.
Despite missing a penalty against Inter in the Europa League last week, Roberto Mancini's side are believed to have entered negotiations over a pre-contract agreement.
According to reports in Italy, Inter have offered Konoplyanka a four-year contract worth £45,000-per-week, which could rule West Ham out of the running.
Yet with Mauricio Pochettino seeking to add a winger at Tottenham, he could well return with a bid for Konoplyanka - but he will have to move quickly to keep him out of Inter's clutches.
