Marseille defender Duje Caleta-Car has revealed that he turned down an offer to move to Liverpool in the January transfer window.
At a time when Jurgen Klopp will likely have to cope without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip for the remainder of the season, Caleta-Car has confirmed that the Premier League champions approached him, but he elected to stay with Marseille.
Speaking to reporters ahead of Wednesday's Ligue 1 clash with Nice, the Croatia international said: "Today, there is the Champions League, and I am going to watch the two games, I received an offer from Liverpool.
"It was an honour for me to know that such a club wanted me. We decided with the club that I was going to stay. Marseille is also a great club and I still have a lot of improving to do here."
Caleta-Car has scored twice in 21 top-flight Ligue 1 appearances for Les Olympiens this term, and he could shake off an injury in time to face Nice on Wednesday.
