Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk winger Yevhen Konoplyanka could finally make his move to Liverpool this summer after talks in January fell through.

The Ukraine international's agent, James Lippett, took to Twitter on Thursday, stating that he is headed to Anfied, presumably, to discuss the 24-year-old's future.

"En route to Liverpool," he posted on his social media page.

The wide man features regularly for former Real Madrid boss Juande Ramos' squad in the Ukrainian Premier League.

He has tallied 11 goals and 6 assists in 24 starts in all competitions, which included an effort that reached the second round in the Europa League, only to bow out in the hands of Premier League giants Tottenham.

Former Arsenal player Oleh Luzhny called Konoplyanka a "headless chicken" in the past, believing that his playing style is not suited for England's top-flight.

However, being able to play consistently under a world-class boss in Ramos says much about his quality.
