Borussia Dortmund look set to keep hold of defender Neven Subotic after the club issued a 'hands off' warning to potential suitors.
The German club, runaway leaders in the Bundesliga, are expected to be raided this summer after an impressive season and Subotic is one of a host of names being linked with such a move.
Liverpool were tipped to be the front runners for his signature but Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke says the club have no intention of parting with the defender.
"Neven Subotic is not for sale, not for any price," Watzke told Ruhr Nachrichten.
"He is contracted to us until June 2014 and he is an important part of the club's first team as much as for the future of this club."
Kenny Dalglish, who is expected to be given a permanent deal at the club as well as plenty of money to spend this summer, has been charged with building a Liverpool squad capable of challenging for Champions League places and eventually, for the Premier League title.
Having signed Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez in the January transfer window, it's clear Dalglish will be trusted again in the summer window to attempt to sign players capable to match such ambitions, alongside Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli.
