The Express reports that Liverpool Chief executive Ian Ayre has flown to Florida, where the Ukrainian club have set up its winter base, to start negotiations over a potential deal for the Brazilian attacker.
According to the report, the Reds are offering around £25million for the player, but the Ukrainian club value him at £39million.
