PSV Eindhoven striker Jeremain Lens' agent has played down talk linking his client with a possible move to Liverpool, reports Sky Sports.

The 24-year-old Dutch international is just one of a growing number of forwards that has been mooted for a January switch to Merseyside, as the Premier League giants look to address a growing injury-crisis in attack.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has been credited with an interest in a host of different names, including Lens, who recently admitted that a transfer to one of Europe's major leagues, would represent the next step in his career.

Serie A giants Juventus have also been outlined as a club keeping tabs on the player's situation, so if Liverpool are considering an attempt to lure him to Anfield, they will face serious competition for his signature.

However, Lens' representative Kees-Ploegsma, has played down all speculation, claiming he has not spoken to either of the alleged interested parties.

"Juventus and Liverpool interested in Lens? I have had no type of contact with them, but I cannot know if they have spoken directly with PSV," he told

"Lens still has a three-year contract with PSV and I think it is not intended to leave in January, but in football anything can happen."

A mid-season move when the transfer window reopens in the New Year has been suggested, but Ploegsma stated his preference to begin negotiations at the end of the 2012/13 campaign.

"At this time he is 100 per cent a PSV player, with which he'll play also the second part of the season. Then in June we'll see."
