The agent of Liverpool’s main transfer target Yevhen Konoplyanka has said he is hopeful of a deal with an English club.
It seems that Liverpool are in pole position to secure the signature of the 24-year-old winger from Dinipro. Tottenham were said to be in the running along with French champions Paris Saint Germain.
This transfer could determine whether the Reds have had some kind of success in the window having yet to bring in player thus far.
They missed out on Mohamed Salah to Chelsea after tracking the Egyptian for a significant amount of time. Konoplyanka is said to have expressed a desire to play for Liverpool.
His agent James Lippett is in Ukraine, and has tweeted:
