The left-back cost Wanderers £2.5m when he signed from Real Madrid in the summer of 2010, but is out of contract at the end of the season.

And, although sporting director Daniele Prade admits the Serie A club would be willing to test the water by trying to bring him to the Stadio Artemio Franchi before transfer deadline day, he claims the Trotters are playing hardball.

"I think it would be hard to take him right away, because Bolton are making a stand," he told Sky Sports Italia.

"If we don't find an agreement with them, then we will do everything in June."

Prade also denied any interest in Juventus duo Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella, saying: "Neither of them will be arriving here. We have not talked with Juventus and we are just fine with our attacking options."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
