Andrea Dossena's agent has reiterated that his client's future remains a subject of much uncertainty.
The Liverpool defender is reported to be a January transfer target for a number of Serie A clubs keen to take him back to his homeland.
However, the Reds appear reluctant to do business, despite Dossena being regarded as little more than a squad player at Anfield.
Speculation continues to suggest that it is only a matter of time before a deal is struck, but for now stalemate has been allowed to set in.
"There is no news about Andrea," Dossena's agent, Roberto La Florio, told calciomercato.it.
"At the moment everything is blocked. It all depends on Liverpool who, until now, seem to have no intention of altering their strategy."
La Florio has also ruled out the possibility of Dossena being allowed to leave on loan, with any potential deal needing to see Liverpool recoup the majority of the £7million they paid Udinese for the Italy international in July 2008.
He added: "A loan with the possibility of being signed at the end of the season? At the moment I don't think Liverpool would consider this option."
Napoli, Roma and Juventus have all been linked with the versatile 28-year-old in recent weeks.
