Surkis: Dynamo is wealthy enough to acquire a player like Pikhalyonok

Earlier it was reported that the people of Kiev made an offer to Dnepr-1 for Alexander, Shakhtar repeated this proposal, but the player himself refused to return to the Donetsk club

The president Dynamo Igor Surkis commented on the information about the possible acquisition of the midfielder Alexandra Pikhalenka from SK Dnepr-1.

“So far I do not have any official proposal regarding any of our leaders – be it Shaparenko or Buyalsky. But Dynamo will not stand on the porch with his hand outstretched. Only worthy options that may appear, for example, after the Euro will be considered.”

“At the same time, we are wealthy enough to acquire a player who interests our coaching staff as much as Pikhalyonok.”

Let us remind you that at the end of May information appeared that SK Dnepr-1 received an offer to transfer Pikhalenok from Dynamo Kyiv. At the same time, it was reported that when Alexander transferred to the Dnipro club from Shakhtar, a clause was specified in the contract, according to which any proposal for a midfielder approved by the Dnipro team must be shown to the Donetsk club.

Having familiarized himself with the Dynamo proposal, Shakhtar decided to repeat it. Presumably, we could be talking about the amount of 2.5 – 3 million dollars. According to available information, the Miners accepted the terms of Pikhalenok’s personal contract, the parties reached a preliminary agreement, but Alexander himself changed his mind at the last moment and refused to return to Shakhtar, where he is a student.

In May, Pikhalenok turned 27 years old. He has been a Dnepr-1 player for three years now. Last season, Alexander played 31 matches in five tournaments, six goals and the same number of assists. In April-May, he missed several games due to injury and, as a result, was not even included in the reserve list of players for the Ukrainian national team to prepare for Euro 2024.

At the end of the 2023/24 season, Dnepr-1 finished fourth and will play in the Conference League qualifications. Dynamo came second and will take part in the Champions League qualification.
