Inter Milan midfielder Philippe Coutinho is set to become Liverpool's second January signing.
The Reds' initial bid of 6million euros (£5m) was rejected by the Italian club but they are ready to increase that offer to push the deal through.
Cash-strapped Inter are willing to sell the 20-year-old Brazil international, who has indicated he's keen on a move to Anfield.
Liverpool are confident further negotiations this week will reach a successful conclusion and Coutinho is viewed as a hugely exciting talent.
Blessed with pace and technically gifted, the versatile youngster can play in central midfield, out wide or in the No 10 role as a second striker.
The arrival of Coutinho won't stop Liverpool from looking to complete a deal for Blackpool's Tom Ince - but only if the price is right.
Liverpool value Ince at £6m. Under the terms of Ince's departure to the Championship club 18 months ago, the Reds are entitled to 35 per cent of any sale so their cash offer is £4m.
Blackpool turned that down, demanding an extra £2m, but the Reds have no intention of meeting those demands.
