Report: Tottenham snub Yevhen Konoplyanka - despite being available for free

Tottenham have reportedly snubbed Dnipro star Yevhen Konoplyanka.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham have rejected the chance to sign Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk winger Yevhen Konoplyanka on a free transfer this summer.

Spurs have missed out on a top four place in the Premier League this season, but can have plenty to be optimistic about after a promising first term under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

New signings will of course be needed in order for Tottenham to challenge for the top four, with additions required in the final third to help Spurs get to the next level.

It has long been reported that Tottenham had held an interest in signing Dnipro star Konoplyanka, with The Sun recently suggesting that Spurs were hoping to agree a deal for the Ukraine international before his contract expires this summer.

Available on a free transfer this summer, the highly rated winger is bound to be in demand - but the Daily Mail believe that Spurs are no longer interested in a move to bring Konoplyanka to North London.

The report states that Tottenham are instead moving onto other targets to play out wide under Pochettino, leaving Konoplyanka's future up in the air and Spurs fans to wonder who their manager is eyeing instead.

Given the recent suggestions that Tottenham had been pursuing Konoplyanka, it would be something of a surprise to see them turn down a free transfer move - but if Pochettino has other targets in mind, then there is little point targeting the Ukrainian even if he is available fore free.
