Liverpool have made an enquiry over Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic, according to reports.
The Sunday People claims the Serbian has rejected the possibility of a move to Anfield though, with the Reds' interest immediately falling flat over the £13 million-rated centre back.
Kenny Dalglish is thought to be in the market for defenders after a disappointing pre-season, with Liverpool conceeding a plethora of goals before yesterday's 2-0 win over Valencia.
A left back is thought to be the club's main priority, with Spanish full back Jose Enrique the favourite to join Liverpool amidst a plethora of linked players.
Whilst Subotic is reportedly keen to play English football, the defender is claimed to want Champions League football, something Liverpool are unable to offer the player this season, unlike Dortmund, who won the Bundesliga last term.
With the 22-year-old target staying in Germany, Liverpool will now have to take their search for a player in the position elsewhere, with Scott Dann a defender also thought to be on the Merseysiders' radar.
