It was expected that English Premier League giants Liverpool will move in on Brighton star Pascal Gross in this winter transfer window and complete a deal for him before it runs out.
This is after the Reds were reported to be keen on his signature and would do all it takes to have him join the Anfield.
All of the expectation to see him in the Red shirt has been squashed by claims from BBC Radio Merseyside sport editor Ian Kennedy, via the Daily Star that Liverpool will not in any way move in for the player.
According to him, Liverpool are not interested in him as reported by the British press while admitting that he is a good player who helped his side record a first successful season in the Premier League.
The BBC reporter noted that Reds manager Jurgen Klopp never makes his transfer intention known to the public until it has been sealed and confirmed.
However, the chances of Liverpool sealing a deal in this winter window remains slim after claims by the German boss that he has got a good squad he can rely upon.
Meanwhile, Liverpool still sustain the lead on top of the Premier League table.
