Sevilla have rejected reports that Chelsea have tabled a bid for Daniel Alves.Sevilla have moved to reject speculation which has suggested Chelsea have tabled a bid for Daniel Alves.
The usurped Premier League champions are known to be in the market for a right-back and have earmarked the attacking 24-year-old as a possible acquisition.
It has been suggested Chelsea have made an offer in the region of £13million but Sevilla have rejected these reports, as they bid to keep hold of their prize asset, with club president Jose Maria del Nido issuing a firm denial.
"We have not received any offers for Daniel Alves," he told the club's official website.
"I wish to reiterate that no-one has shown an interest in him, hence, we cannot speak about something that hasn't taken place."
Alves has emerged as one of Europe's top full-backs in the past few seasons and has courted attention from several of the world's biggest clubs.
The player's agent, Jose Rodriquez Baster, has previously claimed his client is desperate for Sevilla to accept a bid lodged by Chelsea.
Alves' existing contract at the Primera Liga club is not set to expire until 2012.
