FC Dnipro executive director Andriy Rusol believes Liverpool are likely to make a renewed bid for winger Yehven Konoplyanka this summer.
The Reds' move for the 24-year-old fell through on the final day of the January transfer window after Ihor Kolomoyskyi, the Dnipro owner, refused to sign the paperwork necessary to complete the deal.
The ECHO has since seen documentation proving that the full fee was transferred to Dnipro two hours before Friday night's 11 o'clock deadline.
Brendan Rodgers, speaking after the Reds' 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Sunday, said that the confusion would not necessarily deter Liverpool from making a fresh bid to sign Konoplyanka this summer, provided he is deemed the right player for the club.
And Rusol agrees, though he has reiterated Dnipro's stance that there simply wasn't enough time to complete a deal in January.
Rusol said: "There was no time to organize the technical transfer. If Konoplyanka continues in the same train and play the way he plays, it's a matter of time before he goes into a good European club.
"I am a thousand per cent sure that Liverpool will attempt to buy Yehven in the summer."
