Rodgers confirmed that Konoplyanka is still on their wish-list.
"We've got lots of people we are looking at. We'll assess where we are at the end of the season," he said.
"If we can get into that elite competition [the Champions League], it attracts a different type of player as well, so I think it's very important, and I hope it will be this year."
