Konoplyanka To Liverpool: Should Chelsea Hijack Move Just For A Laugh?
Try and make up a song about that name, Koppites.
SkySports suggest that Brendan Rodgers is 'hopeful' of securing the Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, who you may remember from that time he had the temerity to come over here and score against our boys when England played Ukraine at Wembley in late 2012.
Able to play on either wing or through the middle (meaning he could act as cover for Coutinho too), we're loving this totally nostalgic resurgence of Eastern European wing-wizards.
Set to sign before this Friday - unless Chelsea get there first.
Let us be clear: they've not announced their interest. Not officially, anyway. But why should that stop them? After nabbing Salah from Basel right from under Rodgers considerable nose, who's to say what they'll do? It'd be funny, that's for sure.
It genuinely wouldn't be surprisingly, given how easily the Liverpool board have allowed themselves to be pickpocketed this window: the club equivalent of strolling down Oxford Street at lunch-time with your gear in your big, billowy harem-pants.
Still as it is, looks like he'll be in Liverpool by the weekend. Probably.
