Atletico Madrid have insisted they are yet to receive any enquiries for striker Adrian Lopez, amid reported interest from Arsenal and Tottenham.

Sky Sports News reports that the north London duo have been linked with a move for the 24-year-old forward this summer.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to have short-listed the Spaniard as a potential replacement for want-away captain Robin van Persie, while new Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas is also keen to add a striker to his ranks this summer.

However, Atletico president Enrique Cerezo has moved to end speculation linking his player with a move away from the club, insisting they are yet to receive any interest in the striker.

“Adrian is an Atletico player for the next four years and nobody has called to ask about him,” he said.

“Nobody has called him or the club.

“You would have to ask those that are talking about him because it appears that they know a lot more.”

Cerezo is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News

Adrian was in impressive form last season, scoring 11 goals in 18 games to help guide Atletico to a Europa League trophy. He was handed his first international cap for Spain in May but missed out on a place Vincent Del Bosque’s Euro 2012 squad.
