Fulham coach Rene Meulensteen has insisted that he has not received a single bid for unsettled striker Dimitar Berbatov as Premier League rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur continue to ponder a cut-price January bid.
Berbatov has been consistently linked with a move across London to either Arsenal or Spurs before the transfer window closes, as the Bulgarian hitman enters the final few months of his deal at Craven Cottage.
Meulensteen remains adamant that he has not received an official approach for his star striker though, adamant that Fulham expect to keep Berbatov until at least this summer to aid their fight for Premier League survival.
He told The Independent: "No. There is no problem at all, he is a Fulham player."
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has also poured scorn on a potential bid for Berbatov as Arsenal prepare to host Fulham at the Emirates tomorrow, claiming that while he is an admirer of the ex-United marksman he will not be looking to add the 32-year-old to his attacking options.
He told reporters at his pre-match press conference: "Do I rate Berbatov as a player? Highly. Have we made any approach to sign him? No."
Wenger will get another chance to watch Berbartov up close and personal tomorrow afternoon, when Fulham's talisman will look to add to a goal tally of five in 17 against the league leaders.
