The agent for Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka has hinted that Liverpool have resumed their interest in the player, reports David Kent of the Daily Mail.
The Reds targeted the Ukraine international during the January transfer window, and they even had a delegation in the eastern Europe country to finalise the move before the deal fell flat before the window closed, notes the article.
But now Konoplyanka's representative James Lippett made a cryptic suggestion on his Twitter feed, @JamLipp78, saying: "En route to Liverpool..."
Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been backed to lift the Premier League title by former team-mate Gary McAllister, reports Chris Bascombe of the Daily Telegraph.
McAllister is quoted as saying:
Stevie is 33 but this is only the third chance he has had to win the Premier League. It is such a difficult league to win and it would complete his set.
Obviously there was a little foray into thinking if he would need to go somewhere else to win it but it would not have meant as much to him as this.
The biggest clubs in the world have all asked for him but he’s put Liverpool ahead of them all.
If it happens, I can’t think there would be anyone who deserves it more.
