Alessio Cerci: Has received no contact from Premier League clubs

Speculation continues to suggest that the 26-year-old is a top target for a number of Premier League sides.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have all been credited with holding an interest in the Italy international.

Representatives from those title-chasing outfits are said to have been in attendance to cast an eye over Cerci in Monday's 2-2 draw with Nigeria at Craven Cottage.

They will have left convinced that he could be a useful addition to their ranks, but no discussions regarding a winter switch have been held as yet.

"It's not true. I haven't spoken to anyone," Cerci told Tuttosport.

Torino are also keen to prevent the rumour mill from spinning out of control, with the Serie A outfit in no mood to discuss a sale.

President Urbano Cairo told TMW: "I haven't received any calls from England for Cerci, even if I read in the newspapers that there is interest from British clubs.

"As far as I am concerned, there's no truth to it. Will he stay at Torino in January? Of course."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
