Juventus have yet to make a formal offer for Andrea Dossena, according to the agent of the Liverpool defender.

The Italy international has been linked with a return to Serie A after just one season in the Premier League and recently admitted he was flattered by reports that Juve were interested in acquiring his services.

However, agent Roberto La Florio claims that no offer has yet been tabled for the 27-year-old full-back.

"At the moment, there are no updates," he said. "Juventus have yet to decide whether to consider my client or Fabio Grosso (of Lyon).

"If they decide to target my client then we would evaluate the offer.

"He is happy at Liverpool. but Juventus is Juventus and he's a little nostalgic for Italy."

Elsewhere, Chievo head coach Domenico Di Carlo has again stated that star striker Sergio Pellissier is not for sale, following a recent approach from Napoli.

The 31-year-old, who recently scored on his international debut for Italy against Northern Ireland, still has several years of his contract with the Flying Donkeys to run and Di Carlo is in no mood to sell.

He commented: "Pellissier isn't going anywhere, but the transfer market is crazy sometimes.

"I am sure that if he was to stay with us he would be scoring goals galore next year."

The agent of Bayern Munich striker Luca Toni has stated that his client will not be returning to Italian football this summer.

The 32-year-old Italy international has been linked with both AC Milan and Internazionale, but Tulio Tinti insists that Toni is not heading home just yet.

He stated: "He is a Bayern Munich player and will continue to be.

"All of these rumours have been invented and they have nothing at all to do with the reality of the situation.

"He's staying at Bayern Munich."

Toni is under contract with Bayern until June 2011, having scored more than 50 goals in two seasons at the Allianz Arena.

Elsewhere, Aly Cissokho has completed his move from FC Porto to AC Milan after passing a second medical at the Italian club.

The French full-back's switch to the Rossoneri had been in doubt after initial medical tests revealed a dental problem which, according to reports, was feared could eventually affect his posture.

However, the 21-year-old has now revealed that a second series of tests have given him the all-clear and that he will officially put pen to paper with Milan on his return from holiday.

"I can confirm that I encountered some problems in my first physical," said Cissokho.

"But then we did another test, a more detailed one, and everything went well.

"I have signed my pre-contract with Milan and now I am going on holiday to Senegal."
