Ghanaian international Asamoah Gyan has denied claims that Premier League giants Chelsea are interested in securing his services, in an interview with Hot FM (via Ghana Soccer Net).

Despite being at the peak of his powers, Gyan took the decision to leave Sunderland for the cash rich Al Ain in the UAE Pro League back in the summer of 2011 and many criticized the striker for his decision, which seemed to be purely based on monetary gains.

Following three years in UAE, Gyan then made a move to another financially lucrative destination in China by joining Shanghai SIPG at the start of last season and the Ghana international reportedly currently earns around a whopping £227,000-per-week in the Asian nation.

However, Gyan has not quite been able to adapt to life in China and with injuries not helping his cause the striker has not had the desired impact for SIPG.

As a result, it had been claimed that SIPG would be looking to dispense with the services of Gyan this summer and the striker leaving the Chinese club is seen as a real possibility, especially following the recent big money arrival of Brazilian superstar Hulk.

Surprisingly, Gyan was linked with a move back to Europe, allegedly being courted by Premier League side Chelsea.

Now Gyan has gone on to speak about the reports and has stated that while he has been receiving offers from a host of European clubs, Chelsea are not one of them.

The former Rennes star told Hot FM, “I deal with paper work. I have not received any offer from Chelsea I think they are all rumors but I have received a lot of offers from different clubs. And I will take a decision when the right time comes. I am still observing things."
