Tottenham, Liverpool, Stoke linked winger Yevhen Konoplyanka says England is his dream

Tottenham, Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham linked winger Yevhen Konoplyanka says England is his dream, amid reports Spanish side Sevilla are interested in him.

Ukrainian winger Yevhen Konoplyanka has confirmed his intention is to move to the Premier League.

Italian website Tuttomercatoweb report how he told Futbol1: "My priority is to play in England, it will be my decision because that's where I want to continue to grow, all other rumours circulating around are just fantasies."

The Dnipro attacker had been strongly linked with a move to the team which ended his Europa League final dream, Sevilla.

InsideSpanishFootball had reported last week how Sevilla had hoped to be close to sealing a move for the Ukrainian international.

His comments are a considerable boost to Premier League clubs who have been linked to his services.

Liverpool made a big effort to sign him in 2014, and The Metro reported two months ago that the Reds were still interested in bringing him in. The winger is available on a free transfer this summer.

The same newspaper reported last month that Tottenham were pushing hard for a deal to sign the player who impressed against them in the 2013/14 Europa League.

BBC Radio Stoke reported early last week that Stoke City had identified Konoplyanka as a top target, while SkySports reported last July that West Ham had a substantial offer for his services turned down by Dnipro.

With his future in his own hands, it looks likely Konoplyanka will be playing in the Premier League next year, it just remains to be seen where.
