Liverpool eyeing £100k-per-week ace as fifth summer addition

Liverpool have reignited their interest in Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk’s Yevhen Konoplyanka and could make the winger their fifth summer signing, according to reports from Metro.

The Reds have already been active in the transfer market since the close of the 2014/15 season, with Joe Gomez, signed from Charlton today, the latest addition at Anfield after James Milner, Adam Bogdan and Danny Ings – albeit the compensation fee for the latter is as of yet unknown.

And the latter three Bosman signings could well be joined by another freebie in the shape of Konoplyanka, with reports claiming that the Reds are interested in the Ukrainian once again.

The 25-year-old is set to be a free agent in a matter of weeks and is seeking a move to the Premier League.

Reports claim that the winger is eyeing a £100,000-per-week salary, plus a signing on fee.

Liverpool could use ‘Kono’ as a replacement for Raheem Sterling, who is believed to be nearing a move to Manchester City.

The Merseyside club almost signed Konoplyanka in January 2014, but saw their efforts thwarted by the close of the transfer window.
