Premier League giants Chelsea have made no approach for Slovenian midfielder Armin Bacinovic, according to his agent.
The Palermo ace has been linked with a move to England in recent weeks, with Liverpool also thought to be tracking his progress.
However, the player's agent Amir Ruznic denies that the Serie A outfit have received an approach for the 21-year-old hot prospect.
Ruznic told calciomercato.it: "Interest of Chelsea for the player? I know nothing. I talked with the president (Maurizio) Zamparini and he didn't tell me anything.
"It is normal that the player might be followed, but we haven't been contacted in any way.
"Obviously, these are rumours that are pleasing, but our thinking is aimed exclusively to Palermo, we respect very much the club.
"The boy is fine in Sicily, is happy in the city, with the fans and the president.
"I believe that both Bacinovic and (Josip) Ilicic won't move from Palermo for the next two years.
"The president believes strongly in this project and it will be hard to snatch the two players."
Midfielder Josip Ilicic has also been linked with a move away from Stadio Renza Barbera, and reports suggest he was close to joining AC Milan in the summer.
