Leonardo Bonucci's agent has stressed that the defender is concentrating solely on performing well for Bari.
The young centre-back, who is co-owned by Genoa and Bari, has attracted attention following a series of assured performances this season.
Juventus and Bayern Munich are among the clubs thought to be tracking the 22-year-old but his representative Davide Torchia is not paying much attention to the speculation.
Bari are currently secure in mid-table but have lost their past three games and Torchia says Bonucci is thinking only about picking up more points.
"First of all, I have to say that Leonardo is only focused on doing well with Bari in order to secure safety as soon as possible," he told Tuttomercatoweb.
"The rest is just press talk, the player is on a co-ownership deal and I honestly believe that the two clubs will find an agreement since they are on good terms.
"However, it's too early to talk about this type of thing."
Bari have also played down talk of a summer switch by insisting they have not been contacted by either Bayern or Juventus.
"Bayern have not asked me for Bonucci," sporting director Giorgio Perinetti told Tuttomercatoweb.com.
"Maybe they asked Genoa as he is on a co-ownership deal. We will speak with the Grifoni at the end of the year.
"Juventus? They are following him, but they have not started any talks."
