Gokhan Inler's agent claims there are four English teams interested in signing the Udinese midfielder - but the player is set to remain in Italy.
The Switzerland international, who is under contract with the Serie A outfit through June 2011, has been linked with a move away from the Friuli Stadium in the January transfer window and has been linked with Chelsea and Arsenal.
However, Inler's agent, Dino Lamberti said on www.calciomercato.com: "There are three or four clubs in England that are interested in him.
"But those teams do not interest the player because they aren't top teams.
"If the player leaves Udinese, he needs to go in a team where he can improve and play in the Champions League but he will not leave just to play in one tournament."
The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premiership since his impressive performances for his country at Euro 2008.
"The clubs that are interested in the player must first reach an agreement with the Udinese president before talking to us," he said.
"I know Chelsea contacted the president but I don't know anything else.
"I believe Inler will remain at Udinese at least until June.
"He is concentrated 100% on football and on Udinese."
