Transfer news: Liverpool rekindle interest in Dynamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko - reports
The Reds are rumoured to make a move for Dinamo star if move for Mohammed Salah fails
Friday 10 January 2014
Liverpool may switch their attention to Dynamo Kiev's Andriy Yarmolenko should their pursuit of Mohamed Salah be cancelled by FC Basel.
According to the Mail, the Reds have held a tentative interest in the 24-year-old after he figured prominently for the Ukraine against England in last year's World Cup qualifiers.
Yarmolenko has scored eight league goals in sixteen appearances for Kiev this season, and has fourteen goals for Ukraine.
Kop manager Brendan Rodgers is rumoured to prefer Salah, but the Swiss club continue to stall on any potential deal.
Asking for over £15m for a player whom Rodgers feels may take time to acclimatise in the Premier League, Liverpool may call Basel's bluff and approach the Dynamo man.
The five-time European champions have been in resurgent form this season and, despite a slump towards the end of December, are sat in the European places going into the final phase of the campaign.
