Liverpool have have had a bid for Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio turned down, Juve's CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed.

Marotta added that he believed Marchisio will see out the rest of his career at the club after recently signing a new five-year deal.

"We get so many offers for our players, but we are used to buying not selling. Not only Liverpool, we have received several offers," Marotta was quoted as saying to Calciomercato.

"We have renewed with him, we focus strongly on Claudio and I believe that his first thought is [I will] finish my career here."

Marchisio has made 52 appearances for the Italy national team.

It is unclear whether the approach which Marotta claims was made before or after Jürgen Klopp took over as Liverpool manager.

Klopp had his first game as Liverpool manager on Saturday, the goalless draw at Tottenham Hotspur.
