Tottenham eye swoop to steal £15m Liverpool target

Published Add your comment

Tottenham plan to resume talks over the possibility of signing Ukraine winger Yevhen Konoplyanka later this month, according to the Daily Mail.

Reports in the British publication suggest that the Premier League outfit are considering several transfer targets ahead of the summer and hope to capitalise on Liverpool's failed attempts to lure the £15 million-rated Dnipro star to the Premier League during the last few days of the January window.

24-year-old Konoplyanka joined his current employers in 2006 and has gone on to become one of his country's biggest stars, with 35 international caps to his name already along with a period of stellar form at domestic level at Dnipro-Arena. 

Liverpool were evidently very keen to bring the versatile attacker to Anfield last month, but Brendan Rodgers' hopes of striking a deal were scuppered with it being reported that Dnipro's owner failed to sign the necessary paperwork ahead of Friday's deadline.

And while Liverpool boss Rodgers has admitted that the Reds will review the situation once again during the summer, it appears very much as if Tottenham are hoping to steal a march on their rivals before then.

Tottenham, who currently sit sixth in the Premier League table following Saturday's 1-1 draw away to Hull, have endured somewhat of an eventful 2013/14 season to date with Andre Villas-Boas having left his position as manager back in December by mutual consent following a dismal run of form.

Villas-Boas was replaced in the White Hart Lane dugout by former Tottenham and England midfielder Tim Sherwood. And while Sherwood has largely steadied the ship since taking the reigns, he did not bring any new signings to the club in January.
