AC Milan have failed to dampen speculation linking Philippe Senderos with a move to the San Siro.

Defender's agent has not been contacted by Milan

AC Milan technical director Leonardo has failed to dampen speculation linking Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos with a surprise move to the San Siro. Press reports have suggested the Switzerland international is a Milan target as head coach Carlo Ancelotti aims to reinforce his defensive options. Senderos' form at Arsenal has been mixed since he signed from Servette in 2003 while he has struggled for regular first-team football, making just 14 Premier League starts last term. The 23-year-old could see his opportunities reduced further this term after the Gunners landed experienced defender Mikael Silvestre from Manchester United on Wednesday.

It is claimed Milan could turn to centre-back Senderos before the close of the transfer window, and Leonardo has done little to ease the mounting rumours surrounding a transfer. He told Mediaset: "Senderos? There is nothing definite but the market is open until 31st August." However, the player's agent claims there has been no official approach from Milan. "I have no news about it, I am currently on holiday and I have not had any official contact," Franco Granello told calciomercato.com.
