Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is targeting Sevilla’s Yevhen Konoplyanka, according to the Shakhtar Donetsk manager.
Jose Mourinho was in Kiev on Monday for Spain’s 1-0 win over Ukraine in the European Qualifiers and winger Konoplyanka is said to have been one of three potential signings he was watching.
Shakhtar Donetsk boss Mircea Lucescu says he spoke to Mourinho and stated that 26-year-old Konoplyanka, along with Andriy Yarmolenko and Alex Teixeira, were all being considered as options for Stamford Bridge.
“Mourinho is interested in Yevhen Konoplyanka,” Lucescu said. “I was at Ukraine versus Spain with Mourinho and he is interested in some players. Perhaps it is Yarmolenko or Teixeira, if not, then it is Konoplyanka.”
