Claudio Marchisio is not interested in joining Liverpool and wants to finish his career with Juventus despite interest from the Reds, the Italian club’s chief executive has said.

The Anfield outfit have been linked with a January swoop for the Italy international in recent days as new manager Jurgen Klopp considers his options ahead of the winter transfer window.

Juve chief Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed that Liverpool have expressed an interest in Marchisio, but says that the Serie A club have no intention of selling the player this winter.

Marotta is quoted as saying by BBC Sport: “We get so many offers for our players, but we are used to buying – not selling.

“Our focus is strong and I think Claudio’s first thought is to finish his career here. Not only Liverpool, we have received several offers.”
