Liverpool's deadline-day move for Yevhen Konoplyanka remains ongoing, according to Sky sources.
Liverpool officials have spent this week attempting to reach an agreement with the Ukraine winger's club Dnipro.
Negotiations over a £15m transfer have hit complications, and there is work still to be done ahead of the 11pm deadline.
Sources say Konoplyanka is Liverpool's one remaining target for this month, and manager Brendan Rodgers said early on Friday: "There's obviously an interest in the player.
"We'll see how it evolves. It is obviously a little complicated but the staff that are over there have done brilliant work in terms of giving us every chance to get a player."
Any medical must be completed in Ukraine as Konoplyanka, who scored against England at Wembley during World Cup qualifying, does not currently have a visa.
Tottenham have also been linked with the 24-year-old, but Tim Sherwood said on Friday any arrivals are "very, very unlikely".
