A move for the Barcelona goalkeeper is looking increasingly unlikely.
The Barcelona goalkeeper has grown increasingly frustrated at the Nou Camp as first team opportunities have been hard to come by.
As with last season, the only game time he has seen in this campaign has been in the cup competitions, featuring in both the domestic tournaments and the Champions League.
In La Liga though, the club have stuck by Claudio Bravo, who remains Luis Enrique’s number one for the foreseeable future.
That has led to talk of an exit for Ter Stegen, with Liverpool thought to be at the front of the queue of those looking to secure his signature.
However, Barca are not willing to sell as he is very much seen as one for the future, while a release clause of £62million is a hard sum for potential buyers to activate.
Instead he will continue to explore other options as he seeks to replace current number one Simon Mignolet for next season.
