Espanyol have stated that no offers have been received for winger Albert Riera. The Spaniard has been linked regularly this Summer with a move to Anfield and it was reported that Rafael Benitez had a bid of around £9.5m turned down earlier in the transfer window.

Former Liverpool scout Paco Herrera is now Sporting Director at the La Liga side and has told Sky Sports that no bid has been received by the Barcelona based club.

“We have received no offers for Albert Riera. Not from Liverpool or any other club,” Herrera told skysports.com

“We know what has been written in the newspapers, but this is the truth.”

Meanwhile, Magico Diaz, Riera’s agent, has claimed that Liverpool are keen to sign his client, but Espanyol’s refusal to lower the asking price could see a similar situation to Gareth Barry’s.

“Liverpool want Riera but Liverpool are reluctant to meet Espanyol’s demands.” said Diaz
