Andrea Dossena's agent claims his client is unlikely to leave Liverpool during the transfer window.
The Italy international has been the subject of much speculation this summer, with a return to Serie A widely touted.
The full-back only moved to Anfield from Udinese last year, but has struggled to make an impact in England.
That has helped to fuel exit rumours, with Juventus and Napoli both believed to be keen on offering him a route back to his homeland.
However, the Italian transfer window is set to close on Monday and Dossena's representative believes there is little chance of a deal being struck.
"I am about to arrive in Milan," said Roberto La Florio to calciomercato.it.
"I know nothing regarding those rumours (Juve and Napoli).
"I have read those stories myself it's only rumours.
"I don't think he will return to Italy, it's difficult for an agreement to be reached today.
"I really think it's too late."
Meanwhile, Liverpool are hoping to welcome Daniel Agger back into their first-team fold in the not too distant future.
The Danish centre-half is currently recovering from a back injury, which required an operation, and has only recently resumed full training.
He is making positive progress in his rehabilitation, though, with countryman and Reds team-mate Nikola Saric delighted to see the commanding 24-year-old back in action.
"Agger played with a lot of pain, but now that has gone and that's the most important thing," Saric told TV2.
"He has been working with the physio and he says that things already feel a lot better."
