Davide Santon's agent says there has been no contact with other clubs and the full-back's priority would be to stay at Inter Milan.
The teenager has failed to secure a settled position under Inter coach Rafa Benitez this season and it has led to reports he could move on in January.
His representative Renzo Contratto recently claimed that Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham had shown an interest in the Italy international, but a transfer was most likely at the end of the season.
The 19-year-old has now been linked with more clubs and Contratto suggested Santon's future remains in the hands of champions Inter.
"Are Fiorentina, Genoa, Lazio and Liverpool interested in him?" Contratto told fcinternews.it.
"Davide wants to stay at Inter, but he just wants to have more trust. He's coming from a period that wasn't good but he has now recovered his best physical form. We hope that he can enjoy more confidence from the coaching staff.
"The market rumours? Santon is a player who is under contract with Inter and it will be up to the club to tell us something. We have not had any contact with anyone."
Regarding the Santon link, Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino refused to rule out a move as he discussed the situation of several current Viola players.
Corvino told Lady Radio: "Santon? We must wait and see if Inter gives him out on loan. But we must consider whether he is better than Pasqual.
"Gilardino? He will remain with us. Vargas to leave? There isn't the idea to sell our best players.
"Montolivo's contract? Our intention is to renew it and we had an agreement with the player and the agent, but then they asked us to have time to think. I remain quite confident."
