Werder Bremen received no 'serious' offers for highly-rated Marko Marin during the January transfer window, according to the club's sporting director Klaus Allofs.
The Germany international is regarded as one of the finest young talents on display in the Bundesliga and, unsurprisingly, has frequently been linked with a move away from the Weserstadion.
Allofs, meanwhile, says he was contacted about the availability of Marin, but did not reveal which clubs had asked about the young German.
"There were requests for Marko, but none serious," he told Bild. "I was amazed at the many rumours. We talked about how such rumours came about."
Marin impressed against Spurs in the Champions League last season, and has been linked with a move to north London ever since.
