Liverpool have missed out on Christian Atsu after negotiations with Porto broke down, according to reports.

TalkSPORT cite reports in Portuguese newspaper O Jogo when claiming that Brendan Rodgers has been left frustrated in pursuit of the player, after an initial £3.4million bid was rejected for the 21-year-old.

The Reds have held an interest in the 16-cap Ghanaian international for several months, the radio station claims, and were hoping to bring the player to Anfield this summer.

However, the Liverpool boss will now have to look elsewhere, with the report claiming the Merseyside giants are unwilling to increase their offer for the former Rio Ave loanee.

Rodgers has already added attacking talent to the Reds’ squad this summer, with Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas moving to the Premier League from Spain.

Kolo Toure and Simon Mignolet have also been dragged in to improve the Liverpool defence, as the former Swans chief looks to make his mark on the side.

Atsu is not a player who will be joining the influx of new talent though, and may well stay at the Estadio do Dragao this summer.
