Liverpool still have a chance to sign Eden Hazard after the player's agent confirmed he hadn't signed for Arsenal.
The Lille starlet has been on the radar of a number of top clubs across Europe, with Liverpool one of the Barclays Premier League outfits eager to bring the player to England.
Reports emerged in the last couple of days that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had come to an agreement with regards to signing the player, but his agent and chief representative set the record straight in an interview with Sport.co.uk.
“That information is wrong. There is absolutely no agreement or pre-contract with any club at this moment in time.”
“As I told you nothing will happen in January and in the future we will see, but the player just wants to focus on Lille.”
Wenger stated at the beginning of the month that Hazard was one of the player's that the Gunners were watching, although Arsenal are yet to move on their interest.
"Let us try to make his dream come true. We are following him. Personally I think he has real talent and the level needed to play at Arsenal," said Wenger.
Liverpool have also been keeping a close eye on the player, and saw his skills first hand in a recent Europa League clash.
Former Reds boss Roy Hodgson was thought to be very keen on the player, and director of football strategy at Anfield, Damien Comolli, is also admirer of the player. It's expected that Comolli will encourage new Liverpool boss Dalglish to consider a move for the player.
The Belgian wonderkid is also thought to be on the radar of Real Madrid after a recommendation from Zinadine Zidane, but it's Arsenal and Liverpool who appear to be the favourites and the pair could go head-to-head to land the player.
