Liverpool remain red hot favourites to sign Spurs target Yevhen Konoplyanka before the end of the transfer window.

With just hours remaining on deadline day, Sky Bet are offering odds of just 1/4 on the 24-year-old joining the Reds tonight.

Reports in The Daily Mail earlier in the day claimed Brendan Rodgers was closing on a £15million move for the player, and was set to bring him to Anfield in a five-and-a-half year deal.

Tottenham Hotspur had been linked with a move for Konoplyanka in January, after seeing the winger impress at Dnipro.

However, Spurs are priced at 7/2 to bring the player to White Hart Lane, although manager Tim Sherwood admitted earlier in the day that the club were unlikely to sign anyone on deadline day.

And, with the clock ticking on deadline day, the odds suggest that Konoplyanka will not be moving to Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool will still hold hope however, and are expected to be working hard behind the scenes after Rodgers revealed they were hoping to conclude the deal earlier today.

“The timeline is tight but the club are working hard to make it happen and I'm still hopeful. We will have to wait and see,” said the Reds boss.

Sky Bet clearly believe Liverpool still have time to bring the player to Merseyside.
