Reports from Spain over the weekend claimed that Liverpool had agreed a deal with Mallorca to sign the right-sided full back.
A Liverpool official was believed to be in Spain over the weekend to tie up a deal, with the Anfield outfit prepared to pay é¼3 million for his services.
Cortes is waiting to see if a deal can be agreed before the close of the transfer window on Tuesday.
"There is interest but Liverpool have still not got in contact with the club so all I can do is wait and see what happens," Cortes old El Diario de Mallorca.
Liverpool have refused to confirm whether or not they are chasing Cortes, although the player's agent Tente Sanchez is not sure if a deal can be done before the transfer window shuts at midnight on Tuesday.
"If there is still no news, it looks as if it will be complicated for it to happen," said Sanchez.
Liverpool's reported interest in Cortes comes as something of a surprise as they have already raided Spain to sign a right back in the shape of Josemi and it is unlikely they will bring in another full back.
