Liverpool face competition from Barcelona in their efforts to sign Dynamo Kiev star Andriy Yarmolenko, according to reports from the Express.
The 25-year-old was linked with an exit throughout the summer, but a number of clubs have found it hard to negotiate a deal for his services.
Everton were also said to be monitoring his situation ahead of deadline day, but eventually failed in their attempts to lure him to Goodison Park.
His club are now ready to give the green light over his exit as they prepare to cash in on his services when the transfer window reopens in January.
It is believed that Yarmolenko is favouring a transfer to Spain despite interest from the Premier League as Barca prepare to trigger his £14.5million release clause.
The Ukraine international caught the eye of a host of European giants after impressing last term, featuring 43 times in all competitions, scoring 19 goals while providing a further 21 assists.
