German side Schalke remained open to a late Liverpool bid for Greek defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos.
According to Kicker however, the 21-year-old had no real desire to leave this summer even if a bid had come in for him, with Russian club Zenit St Petersburg also linked.
Papadopoulos has been linked with a move to Liverpool throughout the summer after being spotted at the club’s game against Fulham near the end of last season.
Indeed, some reports even suggested that a deal for Papadopoulos had already been agreed in principle and was only being held up by the player’s inability to undergo a medical until he had recovered from a knee injury. (Daily Express)
Liverpool ended up doing great business and now the reds will surely not bother with trying to take the young man to Anfield
