The agent of Palermo playmaker Josip Ilicic insists that there is no truth in speculation linking his client with a move to Liverpool.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is still in the market for creative talent, according to Sky Sports, with Daniel Sturridge the only addition to-date at Anfield during the January transfer window.

The website goes on to claim that Liverpool are considering an offer that could test the resolve of the Serie ‘A’ outfit, with Ilicic one of Palermo’s star performers since joining the club in 2010.

However, the Slovenian international does not appear to be interested in a move to Merseyside, with representative Amir Ruznic dismissing the rumours out of hand.

"Ilicic moving to Anfield? Please, I don't know anything at all about that. I haven't spoken to anybody about such a move,” he told Ekipa.

"Palermo would not want a transfer to happen. I had a meeting with Palermo boss Maurizio Zamperini and he doesn't want to hear about this kind of scenario."

Liverpool had been linked with a move for German international midfielder Lewis Holtby, but have missed out on the 22-year-old after the Schalke star signed a pre-contract agreement with Tottenham Hotspur.

Wesley Sneijder has also been linked with a move, and it appears that Rodgers will have to pursue other avenues as Ilicic is set to stay at the Stadio Renzo Barbera.
