However, Liverpool's interest in Simon have been turned down a notch in recent weeks, and the player has now confirmed that there has been no concrete bid from the club as yet.
The speedster missed the World Cup and, subsequently, his chance to impress Liverpool and potential suitors due to a hip injury.
Simon is currently in Holland with Gent for pre-season training ahead of next term and, with the Reds now reportedly keen on Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri, a move for him does not seem to be on the cards anymore.
Simon contributed six goals and three assists to help Gent finish fourth in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League last term, and has attracted a lot of Premier League interest in the past.
Liverpool need quality back-up on the wings next term and, while the Nigerian could have been a great addition, Shaqiri's top-flight experience means he is likely to be a better fit for manager Jurgen Klopp.
