Liverpool could sign Artem Milevskiy for £10 million after he had a release clause written into his new contract.
The Dinamo Kiev star had reportedly been on Roy Hodgson’s radar during the summer transfer window but has just penned a new deal to keep him in the Ukraine for three more years.
However, according to talkSPORT, the 25-year-old Ukrainian could leave if a bid from a potential suitor matches his release clause of 12 million euros.
Any January bid for Milevskiy would be subject to Hodgson moving the players he has indentified as surplus to requirements out of Anfield.
The Liverpool boss said: "We were unbelievably over-staffed when I came and, if the truth be known, we still are over-staffed.
"It was just as big a job making sure some of the players who never feature for the first team move on.
“We [need to] limit our squad to players who are either in the frame to play first-team football or who have a bright future who are still anxious to play academy and reserve team football.
"We don't want that middle group who are too old for reserve football but are not serving any purpose for the first team because they never feature."
