West Ham are keen on poaching Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka from under the noses of several Premier League rivals, according to the Daily Express.

The 24-year-old Ukrainian international was due to complete a £16m move to Liverpool in January but the move fell through on deadline day when Dnipro owner Ihor Kolomoyskyi refused to sanction the deal, despite the Reds activating his release clause.

Konoplyanka has also attracted interest from Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur and a tussle for the 5ft9 and 1/2in winger’s services looks likely this summer.

Since making his Ukraine debut in 2010, Konoplyanka has won 37 caps for Ukraine, scoring ten times including a memorable goal against England at Wembley in qualification for the 2014 World Cup.

He scored eight times in 23 starts for Dnipro last term as they finished runners-up in the Ukrainian Premier Division.
