Liverpool's strongly-rumoured interest in Dinamo Moscow winger Balazs Dzsudzsak has been knocked back by the Russian club, who have insisted that there no active bids lodged for the Hungarian international.
Dzsudzsak has been consistently linked with the Reds as Brendan Rodgers looks to boost his squad next month, with the race for Champions League places and perhaps even the Premier League title very much alive.
The 26-year-old's mix of pace and power down the flank has led to scouting from Liverpool, Inter Milan and Fulham, but Dinamo sporting director Guram Adzojev is adamant that none of Dzsudzsak's potential suitors have made their interest concrete.
Adzojev is quoted by The Express as saying: "This is the first time I hear the name of these teams [Liverpool, Fulham] in connected with Balazs.
"There are interested teams, but at such a big club as Dinamo it's not a surprise. It's very busy during the winter and the summer transfer window but I can say we haven't received any detailed offers for the winger.
"It's the coach, this time it's Dan Petrescu, who decides about the movements in the squad."
The Reds are understood to be chasing a whole host of potential additions when the window opens in two weeks time, looking to take the pressure off talisman Luis Suarez and captain Steven Gerrard.
Dzsudzsak would add to their options out wide and has played on the both the left and right flanks for previous clubs, which include PSV Eindhoven.
Inter and Fulham represent stern competition for his signature though, with the Italian giants in particular known to be aggressively pursuing transfer targets ahead of a January reshuffle.
