Yevhen Konoplyanka is still keen to seal a move to Liverpool despite their failed attempts to land him in January, according to the player's agent.

Brendan Rodgers tried and failed to bring the Ukrainian winger in from Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the January transfer window. Reports suggest that the player's club failed to send off the proper paperwork but Rodgers has denied that was the case.

Regardless of how the move broke down, Liverpool botched their attempts to land him for £15m, but were ready to return with a renewed bid in the summer.

And the player's agent, Oliver Cabrera, has revealed that his client is hoping that Liverpool do return for him but admits interest in his client's services remains high.

Speaking to TMW, Cabrera said: "The player wants Liverpool, Italy, Spain, France, Germany. A top league..."

Asked if his client is unhappy with his current situation Cabrera was equivocal in his response. He said:  "Happiness is a very complicated thing. During the summer we will again have offers. There was also PSG but then it didn't materialise. All the players want the top leagues in the world, such as those mentioned above."

Konoplyanka's desire to move to Liverpool is a stumbling block for Tottenham, who were hoping to muscle in on the Reds' interest when the summer transfer window opens.

Daniel Levy is keen to keep his recruitment drive going at White Hart Lane as they continue to push for a top four place in the Premier League.

The winner of Konoplyanka's signature could come down to whoever qualifies for the Champions League. The lure of playing in Europe's top competition will undoubtedly be a big selling point for the player.
