PSV Eindhoven have had no contact with Liverpool or Inter Milan over the possible sale of highly-rated midfielder Kevin Strootman insists the club's chief executive Marcel Brands.

The 21-year-old Dutchman has attracted attention from a number of clubs across Europe after a series of scintillating performances in the Eredivisie this year, but according to Brands there is nothing to the speculation.

Reds boss Kenny Dalglish has been credited with an interest in Strootman, who only arrived at Eindhoven last summer, and is under contract at the Philips Stadion until 2016.

"I honestly don't know anything," was Brands response to questions about the player's link to Inter and Liverpool reports calciomercato.

"And in any case, I do not see how there can be rumours about a player who arrived three months ago and signed a five-year deal.

"Right now we are aiming to win the title and that is why we are not interested in any offers."

Dalglish signed seven players in the summer, and it is expected to be another busy transfer window at Anfield in January, as Liverpool look to strengthen their squad even further in a bid to secure a top four finish, and return to the UEFA Champions League next year.
