Liverpool were one of two clubs chasing the signature of Dynamo Moscow winger Balazs Dzsudzsak during the January transfer window, claims the player's agent.
It seems the Hungary international was in demand last month as Italian giants Internazionale were also keen to tie up a deal for the winger who only joined Dynamo Moscow just over one year ago from Anzhi Makhachkala.
The 26-year-old has scored four goals in his 17 league appearances this season which seemingly caught the attention of Liverpool and Inter who were both believed to have tried to land the winger in January.
Sky Sports believes that Liverpool attempted to bring Dzsudzsak to Anfield on loan for the rest of the season, while Inter attempted to land him on a permanent deal but his agent, Jozsef Voroshbani, revealed that both approaches were turned down.
"Inter, along with Liverpool, wanted to see Balazs in their squad. The Italians were ready to sign Dzsudzsak, but Dynamo wouldn't let go of the player," said Voroshbani.
"My client really likes it in Moscow, but he has a desire to try his hand in one of the top European leagues. I hope that in the summer, Dynamo will look at any details that arrive in a proposal for the player."
If the winger's agent is to be believed then Liverpool may well look to once again compete for the player in the summer as Brendan Rodgers is short of options in wide areas.
Stewart Downing has played regularly, despite being put on the transfer list, while Raheem Sterling is the only other wide player to feature regularly this season.
Dzsudzsak clearly has some pedigree having previously excelled in Holland where he won the league title back in 2008 with PSV Eindhoven. On three occasions he reached double figures in the league before being snapped up by Anzhi in the summer of 2011.
