Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio has confirmed he is not interested in reports linking him with a move to Liverpool, according to Daily Mail.
The Italian international is reportedly a target of Jurgen Klopp and is one man on the German's wish-list for the January transfer window, along with Andre Ayew. Klopp's link with Borussia Dortmund could also see him raid his former club.
Klopp plan changes
Klopp took charge of his first Liverpool game on Saturday, a 0-0 draw away at Tottenham Hotspur, and although he's revealed his plans of not drastically changing things at Anfield, it's understood he does want to be active in January.

Many believe Liverpool haven't replaced Steven Gerrard, who left to join LA Galaxy over the summer, and despite James Milner arriving on a free transfer after agreeing to leave Manchester City, the new manager could still be in need of a strong centre-midfielder.
Marchisio discusses rumours
However, the 29-year-old has admitted he doesn't pay any attention to transfer rumours and has no intentions of leaving Juventus after recently signing a new contract at the club.
"Klopp is crazy about me and wants me to [join] Liverpool? I do not care, I just signed a contract with Juventus," he said.
Marchisio's time at Juventus
The Italian has been at Juve since 2006, making over 200 Serie A appearances for The Old Lady and winning numerous titles along the way.
The only time Marchisio has left the Turin-based club is when he spent a season out on loan at Empoli during the 2007/2008 season.
Marchisio worked his way through the youth system at Juventus and graduated to the first-team in 2006 after around 13-years in their youth set-up.
