Christian Poulsen's agent has denied Barcelona have reached a deal with Sevilla for his services.
The Denmark international has been linked with a summer move to Camp Nou with Edmilson's deal set to expire this summer.
However, while speculation has intensified that Poulsen will join Barca, his agent has stated no deal has been reached.
Poulsen joined Sevilla from Bundesliga outfit Schalke for free in 2006 and has impressed in Spain with a number of impressive displays.
"I can't confirm anything," Poulsen's advisor Joern Bonnesen told bold.dk. "It's only speculation, that's all.
"What I can confirm is no deal has been signed between Barcelona and Christian."
