Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has received no approach about a potential move to Liverpool, according to the player's agent.
The Uruguay international, who impressed for his country at this summer's World Cup, has been linked with several clubs during the summer, with Tottenham strongly rumoured to be chasing his services.
Reports emanating from Italy suggested that Reds boss Roy Hodgson could be planning a 20million euros swoop for the player in January, but this has been denied.
The 23-year-old made the move to Naples on loan in July, where he will face Liverpool in the Europa League group stages at the San Paolo in October.
"An offer from Liverpool of 20million euros for Cavani? These are only fantasies, he has got no offers," the player's agent, Claudio Annellucci, told tuttomercatoweb.
"Edinson is very well in Naples, he is a player of the Napoli.
"We're just at the third match of the championship, there is no problem and this is not yet time to market him.
"Napoli is an end point and not a springboard for Cavani. And any bid should not come to us but to Napoli and they will decide what to do. But I don't think the club should be deprived of Edinson."
