Club careerEdit

 
Yevhen Shakhov with Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in 2016

Born in Dnipropetrovsk, Shakhov debuted on 7 April 2007 against rivals Stal Alchevsk as Dnipro lost 1–3. It was not until the 2010–11 season when his appearance for the Dnipro's senior squad became more regular. On 23 April 2015, on as a half-time substitute for Roman Bezus he scored the only goal of the tie as Dnipro eliminated Brugge to advance to the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League.[2] He left FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk having 127 appearances (17 goals,13 assists) in all competitions.

PAOKEdit

On 28 May 2016, the Ukrainian midfielder of Dnipro, whose current contract expires on 30 June 2016, will continue his career in Greece as a member of Superleague side PAOK signing a three years' contract for an undisclosed fee.[3][4] On 5 March 2017, he scored his first Superleague game, in the derby against champions Olympiakos, helping his club to obtain a 2–0 home win. On 27 April 2017, he scored the third goal in Greek Cup semifinals against Panathinaikos in a 4–0 helping his club to be promoted to the final against rivals AEK Athens.[5] On 8 February 2018, he opened the score in a comfortable 3–1 away Greek Cup win against Atromitos helping his club to be promoted to semi-finals. It was his fifth goal for the 2017–18 Greek Football Cup.[6] On 14 April 2018 he opened the score in a comfortable 3–1 home win against Panionios at Toumba Stadium (behind closed doors).[7] On 29 April 2018, he scored in a 3–0 away win against struggling giants Panathinaikos, essentially occupied the second place in the 2017–18 season that leads in the preliminary round of UEFA Champions League.[8]

On 19 January 2019, he scored his first goal for the 2018–19 season as he controlled a neat pass from Mauricio before scoring with a measured shot in a 3–0 home win game against Panionios.[9] On 7 April 2019, Shakhov scored after Diego Biseswar precise cross, and this time the Ukrainian made no mistake with a powerful header in a 3–0 home win game against Lamia. [10] On 21 April 2019, scored a brace as PAOK finally ended their 34-year wait for a league title with a 5–0 win against relegated Levadiakos and win the Super League title.[11] On 24 May 2019, after Fernando Varela declined PAOK’s contract renewal offer, Yevhen Shakhov followed suit just one day later. The Ukrainian’s contract was set to expire in the summer of 2019 and he met with club officials to discuss a new contract. However, PAOK’s offer, reported at as a three-year contract with annual earnings of €700,000 (with bonuses), was nowhere near the 28-year-old’s asking price and as a result, negotiations fell through.[12]

LecceEdit

On 29 June 2019, he signed a deal with Italian Serie A newcomers Lecce.[13]

International careerEdit

Shakhov's exceptional season with FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk was his passport to be called up by Mykhailo Fomenko to the provisional Euro 2016 squad.[14] He was also called up to the 31-player squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Iceland on 5 September 2016.[15] On 15 November 2016, he scored his first goal with the Ukraine in a 2–0 home friendly game against Serbia.[16]

His father Yevhen Serhiyovych Shakhov was the top scorer of Soviet Top League in 1988 while also playing for Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.
