Southampton have restated their intention to keep defender Virgil van Dijk.
The Dutchman has been the target of a number of leading clubs this summer.
Liverpool apologised amid claims they had made an illegal approach for Van Dijk.
The Reds also said they had “ended interest” in the 25-year-old.
However, Jurgen Klopp remains a fan and there has been speculation Liverpool and Chelsea may yet make an attempt to sign him.
Executive director Les Reed has confirmed Southampton’s star players are “not for sale”.
Following the arrival of Mauricio Pellegrino as manager, Saints are keen to keep all their leading players and are building their summer recruitment around improving their squad rather than allowing it to be weakened.
