Liverpool are in talks over a loan deal for Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo, Sky in Italy is reporting.
The player is expected to fly to England later on Thursday, with the deadline closing at 11pm in England.
Despite previously saying that Liverpool did not need midfield reinforcements, manager Jurgen Klopp admitted last week that the Reds may need other options in the middle of the park.
He said: “It must be the right player. Some players are just unavailable, that’s how it is, but if we can do something, and if we will do something, then we are 100 per cent convinced about it. If we are not convinced, then we will not do it. That’s the situation.
“If it’s the right player, we need him. If it’s not the right player, we don’t need him.
“I’m the one who said we don’t need a midfielder, and now we need a midfielder.
“You were all right and I was wrong. That is the situation.
“But that specific point doesn’t change it. If we do something, then it has to be the right one.”
