Palmeiras have played down talk that striker Keirrison could be set for a switch to Anfield.

The 20 year old Brazilian forward has been strongly linked with a Summer switch to Merseyside this Summer, but his club have moved to dismiss this speculation.

Palmeiras’ director of football, Toninho Cecilio, is insistent that the youngster will remain in Brazil for the foreseeable future.

“I don’t want to spend a lot of time talking about this Liverpool issue as it is not true,” Cecilio said.

“There is nothing official and we were not consulted about this.”

“We have an excellent relationship with Liverpool, who signed goalkeeper Diego Cavalieri, and, if there was something, we will be the first to know about that.”

“Instead, the intention of the Palmeiras board is to keep him here as long as possible here, before he continues his career in Europe.”
