Samuel Eto'o's agent has rubbished reports suggesting that his client is set for a move to Lyon.
The Barcelona striker has been linked with a host of clubs this summer, having been told by the Catalan giants that he no longer figures in their long-term plans.
Ligue 1 champions Lyon were believed to be among those leading the race for the Cameroon international, but the French side are yet to make an official approach for the player.
"No-one from Barca has said anything about this to us and neither have Lyon got in contact with me about this," Joesp Maria Mesalles told El Mundo Deportivo.
"To talk now about this is to speculate, we have not received an interesting offer."
Despite Barca's desire to implement wholesale changes this summer, Mesalles refused to rule out the possibility of Eto'o remaining at Camp Nou next season.
"He doesn't have to do anything," he added.
"He only has to work as he has been doing and if it is the club who don't want him they should have already taken care of looking for a move for him.
"They haven't given us any deadline to look for a team and we are in no rush."
Reports in Spain suggest that Barca are keen to use Eto'o as a bargaining tool in their attempts to lure Karim Benzema from Lyon.
However, the France international's agent claims the 20-year-old is going nowhere - at least for another year.
"Benzema will not move from Lyon this summer. That is sure," said Karim Djaziri.
"Next year it could happen, but this season he will remain at Lyon."
