The Reds came close to sealing a deal for the wide-man in January, but despite agreeing personal terms and conducting a medical with the player the transfer was scuppered as the two teams involved could not settle a fee in time.
Since then the Merseysiders have been linked with a fresh raid for Konoplyanka in the summer, but now Spurs appear to be the frontrunners for his signature.
Tottenham were tentatively alligned with the Ukraine international while Liverpool were negotiating a deal, and have continued to monitor his situation with a view to an offer at the end of the season.
Dnipro’s president, Ihor Kolomoyskyi, says that talks between his side and the White Hart Lane outfit are on-going, and that a deal with them may be better for the player himself:
“I have contact with the Tottenham president. I am talking with him,” he is quoted by Goal.
“He is interested in Konoplyanka. We are in the stage of negotiations and are perhaps close to signing a contract if Yehven agrees.
“I would choose Tottenham – London – not Liverpool. There are matches only once or twice a week, and at other times he will still need somewhere to live. I believe London life is preferable to Liverpool.”
