Report: “Several” MLS clubs hunting summer move for Ukrainian striker


Is Artem Kravets going to go the MLS way?

Reports this week have linked the experienced Ukrainian international to a possible summer move to North America as he nears the end of his current contract with Dynamo Kiev.

Kravets, 28, is a center forward with seven goals in 19 appearances for his country who once drew comparisons to the legendary Andriy Shevchenko. A member of Dynamo’s first team dating back a decade, his exploits for the club earned him loan moves to German side VfB Stuttgart and Spain’s Granada over the past two years.

But he returned to Kiev last summer for the final year of his contract and has helped the club into second place in the Ukrainian top flight at the midway point of the current campaign.

Ukrainian reports have suggested that “several clubs in MLS” are interested in signing him once he becomes a free agent at season’s end, though he’s also been linked to Turkish teams as well.
