Liverpool have reportedly decided they don't need Milot Rashica because Takumi Minamino fits the bill at Anfield.
The Reds have made their decision after Agim Amedi, the president of the Kosovo Football Federation, claimed Liverpool were in hot pursuit of the 23-year-old.
"There are many requests for him," Amedi told Syri TV. "I know that Liverpool in the Premier League want him, but also Leipzig in the Bundesliga.
"I am sure that he will be advised in the best way to make his decision."
Meanwhile, Rashica's agent Altin Lala suggested last month the midfielder would soon be ready to make a decision on his future.
"There are many clubs interested in signing Milot for next season," Lala said.
"But for now, of course, it's suspended. There are some things that need to be done discreetly. Hopefully next season, Milot will have the opportunity to play in the Champions League. This is mine and Milot’s topic at the moment."
Werder Bremen star Rashica was being monitored by Jurgen Klopp ahead of the summer transfer window.
The German and his advisors are known for taking their time when scouting and eventually signing players.
And after much deliberation the Reds have decided against snapping up the Rashica as, according to Sky Sports, he is too similar to Minamino.
Liverpool signed Japan international Minamino back in January.
The forward has taken some time to settle in on Merseyside, but appeared much happier in a recent training session after the Reds returned last week.
