Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers had hoped to bring in the 24 year old wide-man last month but narrowly failed to do so and will make a fresh £16m bid in the summer when they feel his side could be more willing to sell.

It had looked as though the goal-scoring wide-man was on his way to Merseyside on transfer deadline-day, having even completed a medical, but chief executive Ian Ayre failed to get the deal done.

Rodgers had hoped to bring in the Ukrainian international to boost his attack as they continue to push for a coveted top four finish and finished the January transfer window having brought no new additions.

One imagines that if Liverpool do secure a Champions League berth then Konoplyanka would be even more tempted by a move to join and perhaps extra finances would be made available to persuade Dnipro to sell.

Tottenham and Bayer Leverkusen are also said to be interested in the talented attacker.
