Speculation has claimed that Manchester United manager David Moyes is considering a January move for Cerci as he seeks to improve his squad.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with the 26-year-old, who has scored eight goals in Serie A this season.
However, Urbano has dismissed the rumours and he is not concerned about the prospect of losing Cerci when the transfer window reopens.
"I haven't received any calls from England for Cerci, even if I read in the newspapers that there is interest from British clubs," Cairo told TMW.
"As far as I am concerned, there's no truth to it. Will he stay at Torino in January? Of course!"
Reports also claimed that the interested clubs would watch Cerci in action for Italy in Monday night's friendly against Nigeria at Craven Cottage.
Cerci, who has also been mooted as a target for Juventus and Napoli, started on the bench for the Azzurri against their fellow World Cup qualifiers.
