Reported Liverpool target Alvaro Pereira has not been the subject of an approach from any club so far this summer, according to the player's agent.

The 25-year-old full-back has also been linked with Chelsea, as well as nouveau-riche Paris Saint-Germain, but Porto have yet to receive any contact.

"Until now there has been no contact with us," Pereira's representative Alejandro Savich's told Maisfutebol.

"In fact, I can say more: this time we have no offers from any club for Alvaro Pereira.

"I can only speak about the present and the truth is that there are no official offers.

"Alvaro Pereira will start training on Wednesday with FC Porto, but the market only closes on August 31 and until August 31 and anything can happen."


Pereira, it is claimed, has been identified by Liverpool as a potential summer acquisition in their pursuit of a new left-back.

But, should Liverpool formalise their alleged interest in the Uruguay international, they are likely to have to spend big to bring him to Anfield, with Pereira's release clause set at a hefty €30 million.

"He is aware that he has a contract until 2015 and that for now is focused on FC Porto, but also knows that things change quickly and that any time something could happen," added Savich.

"If a club can pay the clause of €30m [£26.3m] then we will see. "

Liverpool have also been linked with Newcastle's Jose Enrique and former Reds Stephen Warnock in their quest for a replacement for Paul Konchesky.
