Artem Anatoliyovich Kravets (Ukrainian: Артем Анатолійович Кравець; born 3 June 1989) is a Ukrainian footballer who plays as a striker for Spanish club Granada CF on loan from Dynamo Kyiv.

Club career[edit]

Kravets appeared for regularly for the Dynamo Reserves and Dynamo-2 Kyiv until he was noticed by Dynamo's new coach Yuriy Semin, who took him to the main team in the 2007–2008 season, who recognized the player's great potential. Most notable appearance was in UEFA CUP game against Valencia which ended in 2–2 draw, helping Kyiv to advance by aggregate goals. Kravets scored both goals for Dynamo on 34th and 73rd minutes. Match was played on 27 February 2009.

Kravets is, arguably, Dynamo Kyiv's most natural finisher and many saw him as the natural successor to Andrej Shevchenko but since the 2010-2011 season (whilst on the verge of breaking into the full national team), Artem has had a series of serious injuries and missed most of the last 3 league campaigns.

After a long struggle though, he has finally regained full fitness and started to display some of his original potential whilst forcing himself back into the Dynamo Kyiv first team for the 2014/15 season. He is currently Dynamo Kyiv's top goalscorer with 5 goals in 6 league games.

On 4 January 2016, Kravets was loaned out to German club VfB Stuttgart until the end of the 2015–16 season.[2] On 30 January, in his second cap for Stuttgart, he scored his first goal for the German Bundesliga side, the late winner in a home game against Hamburger SV.[3]

On 30 August 2016, Kravets was loaned to La Liga side Granada CF, for one year.[4]

International career[edit]

He was called up to Ukraine national football team for friendly match against Serbia on 26 March 2008,[5] but received an injury just before the match.[6] Kravets was later called in a FIFA World Cup 2010 qualifying match against England on 1 April 2009. However, his debut was again delayed when he suffered an injury to a muscle in his thigh, six days before the match, and was subsequently replaced by Yevhen Seleznyov.[7]
