Liverpool general director Christian Purslow has revealed that Emiliano Insua does not want to leave the club, despite speculation over his future.
The 21-year-old left-back has not had the best of times since moving to Anfield in 2007, and has an uncertain future at the club now that Rafa Benitez has left.
A new Reds manager has yet to be unveiled, and Purslow insists that any discussions on Insua's future will have to wait.
"At this moment the only objective of the club is to find a new coach and then evaluate the whole roster of players with him," he told calciomercato.com.
"I cannot confirm the interest of Fiorentina for Insua, even if in Italy he is highly regarded, for example at Lazio who last season often came to view him in person.
"I don't think the player wants to leave Liverpool. When and where he'll do this request, regardless of the difficulties of the club, we'll talk.
"I exclude at the moment that everything can be resolved within a few days."
Insua, an Argentina international, moved to Liverpool from Boca Juniors but has not set the Premier League alight since his transfer.
