Barcelona star Martin Montoya is set to sign a new deal with Spanish giants Barcelona, reports talkSPORT.
This will come as a blow to a number of Europe's top clubs with the likes of Liverpool, Inter Milan, Napoli and Valencia all interested in the player's services.
With the defender's contract set to end at the Nou Camp at the end of the season, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers had hoped to sign the star on a free in the summer.
However, after Montoya has played a key role in the Catalans side in recent weeks, he now looks set commit his long term future to the club.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers may now have to look elsewhere in order to improve his squad at the Merseyside club.
Rodgers' immediate attention however will be on his side's clash with Cardiff City this weekend. Liverpool can go top of the Premier League with a win at Anfield this Saturday.
