Reported Liverpool target Nolito looks set to leave Barcelona in the summer after rejecting a new contract offer.
Although failing to make an impact on the first-team at the Nou Camp, the 24-year-old has scored 13 times for Barcelona B in the Spanish Segunda Division this season to highlight his talents to potential suitors.
The Catalan giants have been keen to tie down the striker, but Barca vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu has revealed they have been fruitless in their attempts to get the Spaniard to sign a new deal.
He told ONA FM: "We have offered him a contract extension, but he didn't accept it. We would love to keep him at the club, but he has turned us down."
According to talkSPORT, Liverpool have previously been monitoring Nolito and it would appear they could reignite their interest should he become available in the summer.
Liverpool are known to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements to provide extra goalscoring options alongside Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll and have been linked with a number of potential acquisitions.
Roma striker Mirko Vucinic remains on the Liverpool radar - reports Metro - while Lille forward Gervinho has been tipped to swap the Stade Lille-Metropole for Anfield.
Liverpool are expected to have plenty of money to spend when the transfer window reopens in June and have also identified the signing of a new left-back as a top priority.
