Yevhen Konoplyanka's agents have said his client has no plans to leave Sevilla despite reports again linking the Ukraine international with a move to the Premier League. Tottenham Hotspur, Stoke City and Everton are the latest clubs linked with the 27-year-old winger, but Konoplyanka instead wants to stay at Sevilla and prove his worth in La Liga.
Konoplyanka has been linked with a move to the Premier League since his early days at Dnipro. Liverpool were close to securing his services in January 2014 but the deal fell through after the Ukrainian club did not receive the money from the Reds on time. Spurs also tried to lure him to England in the following window, but he instead he remained at Dnipro until his contract's expiration.
Stoke City and Atletico Madrid were then major candidates to secure the player's signature as a free agent, but the Europa League champions beat them off with a lucrative salary offer that saw him become a marquee signing for the club.
However, Konoplyanka has so far failed to prove to manager Unai Emery that he deserves a regular place in his side. Despite flashes of his enormous talent and seven goals in his account already, he has only started nine La Liga games so far.
Recent reports claimed that the likes of Spurs, Everton and Stoke City are ready to take advantage of the situation, with Spurs ready to offer up to €25m (£19.4m, $27.5m) to finally secure his services.
But asked about those reports by Estadio Deportivo, a spokesman from his agency, PromoSport Andalucia, said: "There is no doubt that he is not playing as much as he wishes because he is an important player, but he remains unconcerned by those rumours."
"He has not an exit or the name of other clubs in his mind. His only thought is to keep working to convince Unai Emery [he deserves a place in his line-up] and helps Sevilla reach the greatest possible success."
Estadio Deportivo adds that Stoke are monitoring the situation after having already make the player a "mega offer" in the summer. However, Spurs, according to the report, have not made any contact to either the player or Sevilla.
