Anfield side to re-ignite interest in Ukraine attacker.
Liverpool are sending scouts to view Dynamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko as Ukraine take on France in their crucial World Cup qualification play-off according to Sports Direct News.
Having opted to sell Stewart Downing and with youngster Raheem Sterling going off the boil Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers brought in Chelsea’s Victor Moses to help strengthen his wide attacking options, a move that has been a moderate success.

Rodgers is said to have failed with a summer bid of around £20m for 24 year old wide-man Yarmolenko but is ready to re-ignite his interest in the forward given the fine form he has displayed this term.
The Dynamo Kiev man has already netted 12 goals in all competitions this season and is a real threat coming in from the wings and may be considered an ideal man to provide ammunition for strikers Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.
AC Milan are also apparently tracking Yarmolenko who has spent his entire professional career at the NSC Olimpiyskiy and has scored 67 goals in 193 appearances for the club, a very handy strike-rate for a winger.
