Sevilla have confirmed that they have reached an agreement to sign Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka.
The 25-year-old successfully underwent a medical on Friday, but the complex nature of negotiations mean the Europa League winners must also settle on a transfer fee with their fellow finalists, despite the player’s expiring contract status.
“Sevilla FC have reached an agreement with Ukraine international Yevhen Konoplyanka, pending the completion of a medical examination and a final agreement with Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk,” read a statement on Sevilla’s official website.
“Konoplyanka, 25, is one of the jewels of European football, as well as one of the most desirable players in the international transfer market, following his great season with Dnipro.
“He was their star and played in the Europa League final against Sevilla FC. Last season, he played 42 official games and scored eight goals.”
