Angelo Ogbonna's agent says there have been no offers for the reported Arsenal target and insists the defender is not looking to leave Torino.
Speculation has claimed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been tracking the progress of Ogbonna, while Inter Milan and Juventus are also interested.
The Italy Under 21 international is keen to play at the highest level, but has suggested he is in no rush to leave his current club.
Ogbonna's representative Giovanni Branchini has also moved to cool rumours of an imminent transfer for the youngster and says the Serie B club have not received any bids.
"There weren't contacts with Italian clubs, English or Turkish," Branchini told Calciomercato.com. "I categorically deny each transfer frenzy.
"Angelo is aware of the steps that he still needs to take with Torino. Angelo knows he must still grow on the field and learn a lot.
"For him, the present and the future is called Torino."
Branchini also intimated that Ogbonna will stay with Torino until he has played his part in helping the club reclaim their place in Serie A.
He added: "Ogbonna's growth has to be completed and he will do it with Torino, which has an important objective to be achieved - promotion to Serie A."
