Brendan Rodgers was unable to shed any further light on Liverpool's attempts to sign Yevhen Konoplyanka from Ukraine club Dnipro.
The winger is also reportedly the target of Tottenham, with just a few hours remaining of January's transfer window for either side to secure a deal.
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre flew out to Ukraine earlier this week to hold discussions about the player, who admits he is 'excited' at the prospect of moving to Merseyside.
But Reds manager Rodgers was giving little away: "There's obviously an interest in the player but there's no update.
"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.
"But we need to see how that develops over the course of the day. It's all happened so quickly and the deadline is tight.
"We've had a list with a number of players on it, so we'll see how it develops later."
Speaking more generally, Rodgers added: "We are still in the middle of building here and growing the group.
"So I feel we will need a number of players but January is a very difficult market in which to do that.
"I'm very happy with the group I have. I think every manager would like a player or a number of players that can just freshen up the group.
"It always helps and gives that extra motivation sometimes for players. We'll see if we can do it.
"If it doesn't work out and we don't get anyone in, then we have shown over the course of the season that this is a team that is ready to fight all the way. But let's hope we can do something."
