The player's father says his final objetive is signing for Barcelona
Sevilla has signed this summer Yevhen Konoplyanka from Dnpro. The midfielder played in the Europa League final against the Spaniards and at his 25 years old he will play for the first time in one of the big leagues of Europe.
However, Konoplyanka's final ambition is not to play for Sevilla. According to his dad, who spoke to matchday.ua, Yevhen's big desire is to sign for Barcelona in the future: "It's the main target of my son, playing for Barcelona in the future, but we all know it's too early now".
"It's true that Atletico Madrid were interested in my son, but we thought Sevilla was better because their game adapts better to Yevhens qualities", said Oleg Konoplyanka.
There's been many cases of footballers signed for Barcelona from Sevilla, like Aleix Vidal, Rakitic, Adriano, Dani Alves or Keita.
