Agent of €10m Liverpool-linked forward denies departure rumours

Ljajic

Adem Ljajic’s agent has rubbished claims Roma are looking to sell his client this summer.

Ljajic has found playing-time hard to come by of late in the Italian capital, seeing just 42 minutes of Serie A action over the past four weeks.

Brought in as a replacement for the outgoing Erik Lamela, the Serbian started the season well at the Stadio Olimpico, but appears to have lost the confidence of boss Rudi Garcia.

Gervinho, Francesco Totti, Alessandro Florenzi and Mattia Destro have all been preferred in attack, while the January arrival of Michel Bastos has only limited space further.

Recent reports in Italy have suggested Roma are keen to cut their losses and sell Ljajic this summer, less than a year on from his arrival.

The Serbian is best known in Premier League circles for his collapsed move to Manchester United in 2010 under circumstances still debated.

And whilst the idea of the Red Devils returning for him has been raised, it is Liverpool who have been heavily linked with a €10m move for his services.

But agent Fali Ramadani is having none of the media speculation surrounding his client - denying that Ljajic is nearing the exit door at Trigoria.

Adem leaving Roma at the end of the season?Ramadani replied to calciomercato.it. “You journalists speak of it but it is not so.

There is no contact with other clubs and I have not been notified by the Giallorossi leadership of a possible sale.

“I would add that there are not even scheduled talks [to discuss Ljajic’s future] with the Capitoline outfit.

“He is focused solely and only on Roma.”
