Liverpool are in advanced talks with Bayer Leverkusen over a deal for Germany Under-21 midfielder Emre Can.
The 20-year-old has a £10m release clause in his contract and Liverpool have indicated they are willing to meet that figure.
The deal had appeared to stall over the weekend because of the player's personal terms.
But talks are progressing more smoothly now and all parties are hopeful a deal can be concluded in the coming week.
Can, who is also eligible for Turkey, joined Leverkusen from Bayern Munich last summer in a deal worth £4m.
He impressed Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers with a series of combative performances that helped Leverkusen finish fourth in the Bundesliga and reach next season's Champions League.
The Frankfurt-born player prefers to play in central midfield but can also operate in defence.
