Raheem Sterling has already decided that he will not sign a contract with Liverpool this season as he is interested to see what offers come his way this summer, reports ESPN.
The England international has placed his future at Anfield under intense speculation by rejecting a £100,000-a-week contract and then openly admitting it in an exclusive interview with the BBC.
It was later revealed by Brendan Rodgers that contract talks had been postponed until the end of the season but now it seems they have little chance of coming to an agreement.
Sterling has already decided not to extend his current contract beyond its 2017 expiry date and is hoping to get a feel for what else is on offer in the transfer window.
Premier League interest
Arsenal seem most interested with reports suggesting a swap deal involving Theo Walcott could be a possibility.
Sterling has already admitted to being flattered by interest from the Gunners, but Arsene Wenger won't be the only team interested in the England international.
Chelsea have also been linked with the player as have Manchester City. His homegrown status will allow Liverpool to push for a transfer fee in the region of £50million and the Premier League's elite clubs all have the funds to complete a deal.
Liverpool would no doubt prefer to send Sterling abroad where he will be less able to come back to bite them.
Bayern Munich and Real Madrid seem to be the only clubs who are monitoring the situation but would almost certainly be unwilling to match offers from the Premier League.
Anfield officials are intent on not selling Sterling even if he doesn't sign a new contract but a big fee would surely tempt them into cashing in.
