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.
