FLW understands that Liverpool have now opened talks with Manchester United target Dele Alli.
Manchester United were hopeful of concluding a deal for the 18-year-old MK Dons midfielder before the deadline tonight, however according to FLW sources, Liverpool have now entered talks with MK Dons about a potential move.
It is still uncertain as to whether the Sky Bet League One side will let their star midfielder leave in this particular transfer window, but if the right fee comes in for the midfielder a move is likely to materialise.
Alli made his debut for the Dons aged 16 when he came on as a substitute in an FA Cup tie with Cambridge United in November 2012.
He has gone on to make 44 appearances for the League One side, scoring eight goals.
