AS Roma have played down reports that they are holding talks with Liverpool regarding the transfer of Luis Suarez.

It had been suggested that the Giallorossi were discussing a fee with the Reds for the Uruguayan striker but Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini has dismissed those claims.

"There is no negotiation going on for Suarez," Sabatini told Radio Mana Mana.

"Even though he's had a few problems recently, he's a really strong player but these are only transfer rumours."
