Dutchman Johan Voskamp and Uruguayan forward Elias Ricardo Figueroa have both been linked with a move to the A-League to join the Sky Blues with foreign websites suggesting the deals were almost done.
But despite admitting the club is in need of some strike power following the departures of John Aloisi and Chris Payne, a Sydney spokesperson said that Voskamp and Figueroa were no closer to a deal than any other player on the club's hit list.
"Neither player has signed for Sydney FC," the spokesperson said. "We are currently looking for a striker and are searching all over the world.
"These two players are on an extensive list but no decision or offer has been made."
