Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers concedes the deal to bring Yevhen Konoplyanka to the club is "complicated", but insists the winger is his only target for deadline day, as influential fans' website ThisIsAnfield.com reported.
The Reds are involved in talks with Dnipro for the Ukraine international. but time is not on Liverpool's side, Rodgers is quoted as saying:
There’s no update on Yevhen Konoplyanka. There’s an interest in the player, but we’ll see how it evolves. It’s a little complicated.
The staff over in Ukraine have done really well to put us in the position we’re in, but time is against us. We’ll see what happens.
We’re still building and growing the group so we’ll need a number of players, but January is a difficult market to do that in.
New players can come in and freshen up the group, but I’m happy with the players I’ve got if we don’t bring anyone in.
But let’s hope we can do something. Konoplyanka is the only signing there could be.
