Reports in Ukraine claim that the Anfield side have upped their initial bid, with an unnamed Bundesliga side also keen on signing the 24-year-old.

Liverpool have reportedly increased their offer for Dnipro winger Yevhen Konoplyanka to £16million.

The Anfield side were prepared to pay £14.8million for Konoplyanka and now reports in Ukraine claim they are willing to up that bid.

Tottenham are not now believed to be in the running for the Ukrainian international, but it is understood an unnamed Bundesliga side are interested.

Dnipro's multi-billionaire owner Ihor Kolomoyskyi is reluctant to sell Konoplyanka, but could do business because the wideman's contract expires in June 2015.
