Cagliari angry with Liverpool link for Foggia
The Sardinian club posted an angry denial of the story on their official website and insisted it was pure fabrication on the part of the tabloid newspapers involved.
The 24-year-old left winger is still owned by Lazio but an agreement is already in place to make his switch to his current employers permanent at the end of the season.
He was called up by Roberto Donadoni for Italy's Euro 2008 qualifiers earlier this month as reward for a fine start to the campaign.
Cagliari have stressed that they are proud of his introduction to the Azzurri squad and do not want their 'healthy atmosphere' affected by talk of a move to Anfield.
