Turkishclub Fenerbahce have issued a statement following press rumours suggesting that they are about to sign Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso.
"For a while now, there are reports in the press saying our club is after Xabi Alonso and that even a deal has been reached upon his transfer," the statement reads.
"These reports are not true. Our club has no intention on transferring Xabi Alonso."
With Steven Gerrard now injured it is becoming increasingly likely that Alonso will still be a Liverpool player when the season starts next week.
