Liverpool fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are given a huge boost after talkSPORT revealed that they are clear favourites to sign FC Dnipro star Yevhen Konoplyanka after Inter Milan pulled out of the race to sign him.
Inter were seen as the Reds’ biggest rival in this transfer battle but the Italian club have failed to meet his wage demands.
Liverpool’s closest competition now comes in the shape of Tottenham and West Ham along with several other clubs in Europe.
The 25-year-old’s current contract at Dnipro expires at the end of the season and he has refused to sign a new deal, meaning if they don’t cash in on him in January, Konoplyanka will be available for a free transfer.
The news regarding his contract alerted Inter boss Roberto Mancini who was keen to bring in his own signings after being appointed mid way through the season.
But they have been priced out of the move with the players wage demands being well out of their price range, meaning they have had to pull out of the running.
Liverpool fans. It seems you are clear favourites to sign him but is Yevhen Konoplyanka the player you want to see signed? Let us know your thoughts below.
