Liverpool have failed with a deadline day move for Real Madrid striker Mariano Diaz.
Real Madrid want to offload Mariano, 23, before the Spanish transfer deadline shuts this afternoon.
La Liga side Alaves are keen to sign the forward, while Spanish newspaper Eco Diario claim Liverpool are also interested.
But Dominican Republic international Mariano has refused to leave the Bernabeu.
According to the report, not even Liverpool’s interest could entice the Real youth player from quitting Madrid.
