Liverpool were interested in bringing PSV Eindhoven attacker Balazs Dzsudzsak to Anfield in January, according to his agent.
The 24-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from the Eredivisie last month but opted to pledge his future to PSV, despite interest from a number of potential suitors.
Liverpool were one of four clubs to make an enquiry about the Hungarian winger, but his representative would not confirm whether or not they made an official approach.
"The most serious teams were Lille, Wolfsburg, Liverpool and Juventus," Jozsef Vorosbaranyi told origo.hu.
"Some of them made a concrete offer but Balazs decided to stay in Eindhoven."
A deal for the €13 million-rated wideman would have represented quite a coup for Liverpool as they set about reinforcing their attacking ranks during the transfer window.
New Liverpool owners, New England Sports Ventures, spent a hefty £58 million to bring Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez to Anfield and were disappointed not to get others - like Dzsudzsak - to Merseyside before Monday's deadline.
"They said when they came in they wanted to take the club back to where it should be. This was their first opportunity to show that," said Liverpool boss, Kenny Dalglish.
"They are actually a bit disappointed we didn't get more players in. That's a good thing."
