Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Tranquillo Barnetta is yet to receive any approach from the Premier League, according to his agent.
The Swiss star has admitted that he would be willing to discuss a potential switch to England this summer, should a suitable offer be forthcoming.
The likes of Arsenal, Fulham and Aston Villa are all reported to be keen on the tricky winger, but are yet to make a move.
Barnetta's representative, Franco Moretti, claims he has received interest from across Europe for his client, but insists there has been no contact from England.
"Up until now nobody has asked about Tranquillo from England, there has been no interest from English clubs," Moretti told Sport.co.uk.
"To be honest, we have offers from other countries but no offers currently from any Premier League sides. No coaches have been in touch
"We have had some requests from other German sides, but if the right offer doesn't come in he may stay one more year with Bayer Leverkusen because they are building a good team. But in England no club has enquired about him.
"He was linked with Fulham and Arsenal but I know the coach (Roy Hodgson) very well and there has been no contact.
"He has never called me or asked about Barnetta. Equally Arsene Wenger, there has been no interest or phone call."
