It had appeared as though Liverpool would end the January transfer window empty-handed after missing out on the transfer of Mohamed Salah to Chelsea. However, they may yet complete a deal before the deadline.
Reports on Wednesday claimed the club had submitted a formal offer for Ukraine international Yevhen Konoplyanka, and the Reds may have to pay as much as £20 million to sign the player from Dnipro.
The father of Konoplyanka has confirmed reports linking Liverpool with his son are 'true' and provided the Anfield club with further optimism that a deal could be concluded after ruling out joining another side in Ukraine.
Konoplyanka brought himself to the attention of the English audience following a stunning goal at Wembley during the World Cup qualification process, and his ability to create and score will surely enhance the Champions League ambitions.
Take a look at the video above to whet the appetite for Konoplyanka's potential arrival in the Premier League.
