Sevilla have rubbished reports suggesting Chelsea have tabled a bid for Brazil full-back Daniel Alves.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League since last summer, with Liverpool and Chelsea among the clubs keen to acquire his services but, after hearing Chelsea have offered £17million for Alves, Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido scoffed at the rumours.

"We have not received any offers for Daniel Alves," he told the club´s official website, "I wish to reiterate no-one has shown an interest in him, hence, we cannot speak about something that hasn´t taken place."
