MEDICAL DONE – Liverpool closing in on Konoplyanka


According to the BBC, Liverpool are on the verge of completing a deal for Ukrainian winger Yehven Konoplyanka, with the 24-year-old having now completed a medical.


Konoplyanka is expected to complete his move to Anfield in the coming hours, with the fee believed to be in the region of £16m.

The BBC’s Ben Smith said, “It’s our understanding that Yevhen Konoplyanka has undergone a medical. It’s not to say this deal is going to go ahead, but Liverpool are hopeful of completing this before 11 o’clock.”

The 24-year-old Ukrainian has emerged as Brendan Rodgers new number one target this January, after Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah opted for a move to Chelsea last week.

Able to play on either flank, Konoplyanka has eight goals and six assists from 19 Ukrainian league games this season, and impressed in recent World Cup Qualifiers,  scoring a cracker against Roy Hodgson’s England.

  1. We thank you liverpool officer’s mostly ayer and co for taking everything granted assive we don’t know what is going on! Top four most work out or else you people should fire out of the cabinet’. Take a look at salah for almost two and half month to chash mohammed ” chelsea enter just for one minute and sign it . So it shows you people are not capable and serious about liverpool

  2. Please you people should let us know how we going to qualify for champion league next season. Shame on all liverpool officer,s

  3. if they were competent they should have known the owner wasn’t going to sign a long time ago… just so amateurish.

    And those saying we didn’t know him b4 – that’s the scouts’ job to find these type of players not the fans. The scouts identified him and Salah and its the “dithering” that has cost us again
