Chelsea transfer target Kwadwo Asamoah has confirmed that he's not interested in leaving Juventus amid reports of a January transfer.

As reported by, the Ghanian midfielder has quashed speculation linking him with the Stamford Bridge club and insists he's happy with life at the Italian champions.

"I have not spoken to anyone," Asamoah told "There are people who used to call me about clubs interested in me, but I don't put my mind on those things. The most important thing is to be on the field and do what you have to do.

"I have a manager who will do that job. At the moment, I have not spoken to anyone. I am doing well and Juve is one of the biggest clubs in the world.

"Moving to another club has not come to mind."

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been linked with several targets this month, Asamoah among them, as the Stamford Bridge chief looks to improve his squad.

Despite an inconsistent first five months at Chelsea, Mourinho has his side well placed to mount a Premier League title challenge in his first season back at the club he guided to two league titles in his first spell.

Asamoah, 25, joined Juventus 18 months ago from Udinese and has gone on to become an integral member for both his club and country.

Juve bought the remaining 50 per cent of his rights from Udinese for €9m in 2012 after they had already entered into a co-ownership agreement.

He's made 59 appearances for Ghana, and is set to feature at this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
