Chelsea are among a host of Premier League clubs who have been keeping tabs on the performances of Mykola Shaparenko at Dynamo Kyiv, according to a report from CaughtOffside.

The Blues are currently serving a transfer ban, which means they will be unable to sign players until next summer. 

However, it seems they are still keeping a close eye on possible targets ahead of the embargo being lifted, and Shaparenko is the latest man to be linked with a potential switch to Stamford Bridge.

The playmaker is not an unfamiliar face to Chelsea. He was a part of the Dynamo side that locked horns with the Europa League champions in the round of 16 of the competition.

Shaparenko has caught the eye with some impressive displays for his team and typically operates in an attacking midfield role. 

Chelsea are not alone in their apparent interest, though. Premier League trio Manchester United, Arsenal and West Ham United have all been noted as suitors by CaughtOffside.
