Naby Keita appears set to stay in Germany with his employers RB Leipzig saying none of their key players are for sale.
The Guinea midfielder has been linked with a move to Liverpool but hinted last month that he would prefer joining Manchester City if choosing to come to the Premier League.
But RB Leipzig's sporting director Ralf Rangnick says his Champions League-bound team want to keep hold of the players that guided them to a superb second place in Bundesliga last year.
"We will definitely not be letting any key players go. There's nothing that will make us budge," Rangnick said.
"It's totally normal for clubs to be interested in our players, but that doesn't affect our stance on the matter."
