Liverpool have been given a boost in their pursuit of Gonzalo Higuain after Atletico Madrid revealed they are not in the race to sign him.
The striker is being linked with a move away from Napoli this summer after scoring a record breaking 36 goals in Serie A last season.
Liverpool have scouted the Argentina international, but Atletico Madrid were thought to be after him too.
However the Spanish club’s sporting director, Andrea Berta, has now rubbished that talk and insisted he is not working on a deal for Higuain.
“At Napoli they can be calm, he will not come to Atletico,” Berta told CRC.
