The Uruguay international attracted transfer offers from Arsenal but the player has now ended the speculation by admitting that he considers the move as a "closed chapter"
The 26-year-old has been the subject of transfer interest from Arsenal but Goal revealed in August that the Uruguay international was resigned to staying at the Anfield club for another season.

"When I left England, I had no news and I have no news now. To me, this is a closed chapter," he told reporters in Uruguay ahead of their World Cup Qualifier against Peru on Friday.
"I always said that if something came up then fine, but if not then I'd stay happily at Liverpool, and that's what I'm going to do.
"There were reports of several clubs signing me, but in the end I'm happy because I'm staying at Liverpool."
Arsenal thought they had exercised a release clause for the player with a bid of £40,000,001, yet club owner John W. Henry insisted the clause only permits them to inform the player of the bid rather than sell.
But the north London club have been forced to pursue other transfer targets over the summer, with Goal revealing the club have sealed a spectacular deal to sign Real Madrid winger Mesut Ozil on a five-year contract.
