Liverpool are in talks over a £16million move for Ukraine international Yevhen Konoplyanka. The 24-year-old footballer, who plays for Dnipro, can play either as a left winger, playmaker or striker.

Manager Brendan Rodgers faces a race against time to try to sign the versatile Ukrainian international, who has 35 caps for his country, before the window closes on Friday night.
