Tottenham Close in to Finally Secure Playmaker Signing

yevhen-konoplyanka DniproUkranian Winger Yevhen Konoplyanka has been linked with a move to premier league clubs for the past few transfer windows.
Liverpool were the closes to securing his services in January 2013 but they ran out of time as the window shut and signing was not complete.
Spurs were interested in him during last summer as well and now as per the provided Daily Mail link, Tottenham close in to finaly secure £7m Konoplyanka signing having already begun talks with Dnipro.
The 25 year old playmaker will be out of contract at the end of the season and Spurs have made the right move to sign him on a cheap in this winter transfer window as other clubs will surely be interested in summer.
Konoplyanka has been an exciting prospect in the Ukranian league and for his nation and will be a great addition to Tottenham’s squad if they can seal the deal.
This season, the pace winger has featured in 21 games for Dnipro, scored 4 goals and provided 4 assists as well.
Last season, Konoplyanka netted 13 times and had 9 assists in 36 appearances.
The price tag mentioned is by no means high for a player who is in his peak years and Spurs must ensure he signs soon.
The North Londoners do have a few speedy wingers in the form of Lamela, Townsend and Lennon but the latter is linked with a move away from White Hart Lane and Konoplyanka can be the perfect replacement.

    There is NO WAY we will pay that much for someone coming out of contract in 5 months. Say he signs at the end of January. He will have to train for AT LEAST 4 weeks (maybe longer, given the Ukrainians have a Winter break), which would make him available for less than three months, before he would be available on a free transfer. Furthermore, given that we already have a full complement of 17 foreign players in the squad (18 if Yedlin is counted), there will have to be departures of foreign players from the squad BEFORE anyone else can be added to it. This excludes Assou-Ekotto, who is not even in the current squad. At the very most, I could see us paying £1-2m, as we did for Lewis Holtby, who found himself in similar circumstances, two years ago.
