It wouldn't be a transfer window without a Liverpool saga of some kind and this time around is no different.
There is likely to be more to play out, with the Reds facing a fight to land Yevhen Konoplyanka—per a report from the Telegraph's Chris Bascombe.
This could be a hammer blow to the Reds, who saw Chelsea beat them to the signature of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah.
Salah is regarded as one of the best prospects in African football at present and a potential global star of the future, with his technique and willingness to take on opponents appealing qualities.
Liverpool's hopes were dashed, will the same play out with Konoplyanka?
The Ukrainian winger has been linked with moves to England before, but Bascombe reports that Reds' chief Ian Ayre is now in Kiev attempting to sew up a deal.
Having been beaten to Salah at the last moment, Liverpool will be keen to tie up the deal with as few complications as possible. News of Tottenham's involvement in the transfer, then, will not be welcomed.
Deadline day looks set to be busy across the Premier League, but the two-way battle for Konoplyanka may well be the story of the day.
