Armin Bacinovic's agent has denied that they are in talks with Manchester United.
Despite only moving to Palermo last summer, the Slovenian has been hugely impressive in Serie A and is attracting interest from throughout Europe.
The tough-tackling midfielder is most strongly linked with England, and reports had claimed that United were looking to edge out Liverpool to his signature.
But the player's representative Amir Ruznic insists he has had no word from the Old Trafford outfit.
"ManchesterUnited? I have had no contacts with them, these rumours are completely new for me," Ruznic told Reterete24.
"Some teams from the Premier League wanted some information about him, but not Manchester United.
"His performance for Slovenia against Northern Ireland put him in the spotlight, but it is a basic information exchange so far.
"Bacinovic has spoken about his wish to play in the Premier League one day, but this doesn't mean, that he will leave Palermo in the summer."
Ruznic revealed that talks over a new deal at Palermo were also ongoing.
"I have talked with Palermo executive director Rinaldo Sagramolo about a new contract, however we have signed nothing yet," he said.
"This is developing and there will not be any problems in achieving an agreement."
