Liverpool FC and the FC Dnipro have reached an agreement over the transfer fee for playmaker Yevhen Konoplyanka.
The reds have moved quickly in pursuit of the 24 year old Ukrainian after his name was leaked to the media by sources close to Dnipro and had upped their bid to £16M.
Liverpool FC have been gazumped over a number of transfer windows in their chase for targets - missing out for Willian in the summer, before last week losing out to Mohamed Salah.
Whilst FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk are heavily bankrolled by their billionaire owner and thus in no need to sell, the player is reported to be keen on a move to a bigger European league.
The Mirror quoted that the player himself said:
"LFC? I'm so excited about it and soon you will know where I will play.
"It's all very serious. I'm shocked myself. It will all be clear very soon."
Initial suggestions of interest from (obviously) Tottenham appear to have disappeared, but others have suggested that a German club are also interested in the services of the player.
If the player does decide to join Liverpool Football Club then supporters will be hoping he fares better than the last of his countrymen to play for the reds - Andriy Voronin.
