Georginio Wijnaldum has reportedly turned down a new contract at Liverpool amid the transfer interest from Barcelona.
The Netherlands international has only nine months remaining on his Reds deal and Football Insider claims that he has rejected a contract extension.
The Blaugrana have been fancied to sign the midfielder in recent weeks, but they are reluctant to meet the Reds' £25m plus valuation.
Wijnaldum is free to negotiate a pre-contract with an overseas club in January and that could end up as the likely outcome, as things stand.
Blaugrana boss Ronald Koeman is keen on a reunion with Wijnaldum, having worked with the midfielder in the Dutch national setup.
The Catalan giants are currently cash-strapped due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and they are unwilling to pay more than £15m.
It remains to be seen whether the Reds will compensate on the price before the international transfer window closes on October 5.
