Inter Milan have dismissed reports claiming Tottenham Hotspur have made an offer for defender Marco Materazzi.
Materazzi's agent, Claudio Vigorelli, was quoted in the Italian press as saying Spurs had been in contact with Inter over the veteran Italian.
Manchester City and Portsmouth were also reported to be interested in landing Materazzi, but Inter sporting director Marco Branca has rejected the rumours.
Branca said: "We have not received any offers from any English teams for Marco Materazzi.
"Marco is under contract with Inter until June 2010. Usually the club's position regarding players like Marco is to keep them."
Materazzi, who has struggled with injury of late, has made just five league appearances for the Serie A leaders this term.
