Espanyol have revealed they are yet to receive any formal offers for Premier League target Pablo Osvaldo.
The Italian-Argentinian striker, who reportedly attracted bids from Blackburn and Wigan in the January transfer window, has been linked with a move to Fulham and other English clubs in the summer.
But Primera Liga outfit Espanyol claim, while they have received interest in the 25-year-old, there have been no concrete offers tabled for his signature.
A club source told skysports.com: "We have received calls and contacts but at this moment there is no formal proposition on the table.
"Osvaldo is an important footballer for us and only a big offer could change our decision.
"We will study his situation at the end of the season."
Cash-stricken Espanyol have set a fixed price for Osvaldo of €15million (around £13m), which would help to ease their financial problems.
The hitman only arrived at the Blanquiblaus last year from Serie A side Bologna, penning a five-year deal.
Osvaldo, who joined Espanyol for a fee of €5million (£4.5m), has also attracted interest from clubs in Spain and Italy.
