Liverpool defender target Oscar Wendt is set to snub a potential move to Barcelona, according to the player's agent.
The Swedish international full back has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe in recent months, with Liverpool thought to be in the chasing pack for the player.
Bayern Munich and Barca are thought to be the other top contenders, while agent Niclas Jensen confirmed that a number of clubs in France and Italy or also keen on the player.
"It's something like eight to ten clubs, and then some are more interested than others," he told Fold Fotbollskanalen.
"Of course, it is flattering to be mentioned in the same sentence as Barcelona, but he is clever enough to understand that might not be the best move right now."
Reports in Sweden claimed the left back was Liverpool's 'top target' less than a month ago, with Kenny Dalglish keen to find a long-term replacement for Paul Konchesky, who has been loaned out to Nottingham Forest.
Fabio Aurelio isn't thought to be a first choice for the Scottish boss, and whilst Glen Johnson has filled in at the position admirably at times, that too is seen as a stop gap for Liverpool until the end of the summer.
"I haven't heard anything, it's just wait and see. I know there is interest from Italy, France and Germany," Wendt told Sportbladet.
"There is nothing serious yet, but there is certainly interest."
Liverpool are set to spend money strengthening their squad in the summer, and defence has been highlighted as a key are for investment by Dalglish.
NESV proved that they are willing to back the Anfield outfit financially in January, and Liverpool fans will hope the same happens at the end of the season, although Wendt's valuation is unknown.
