Liverpool transfers: Yevhen Konoplyanka confirms that he held talks with Brendan Rodgers in January
Yevhen Konoplyanka has confirmed that he held “serious” talks with Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers ahead of a potential transfer to Anfield.
The Dnipro winger was heavily linked with a switch to Merseyside during the January transfer window but a move failed to materialise.
It was serious, but now I’m thinking of it only as a dream
The 24-year-old says he spoke with Rodgers about the prospect of a switch to the Premier League leaders during the mid-season window.
And Konoplyanka, who was also linked with Tottenham Hotspur, concedes that he is still “dreaming” of a move to Liverpool.
“Liverpool are challenging for the league in England. I’m supporting them. I want them to win it,” Konoplyanka told Ukrainian television.
“Yes, us and Rodgers talked a little bit to each other. The interest from Liverpool was very much serious.
“It was serious, but now I’m thinking of it only as a dream, because [Dnipro] are challenging for league.”
