The agent of Schalke midfielder Ibrahim Afellay has denied rumours linking his client with a move to Lazio.

The Dutch midfielder, on loan from Barcelona, has struggled with injuries this season which have limited him to 10 appearances in the Bundesliga.

Despite his injury woes, he is still valued at close to €10 million although that sum continues to drop given his inability to remain healthy.

Lazio have been linked with a move for the ex-PSV player, but his agent Karel Jensen has shot down those rumours.

“Lazio’s interest? I haven’t spoken to anyone from the Biancocelesti,” his agent told

Despite the rumour being turned down, the future of the Best Young Player in The Netherlands of 2007 remains in the balance.
