Gremio president Romildo Bolzan has dismissed reports suggesting that the Brazilian club have agreed a £26m ($33.5m) fee with Liverpool for the transfer of Luan.
The Mirror reported recently that the two clubs had agreed a deal in principle for the transfer of the Brazilian forward after he turned down an offer a new deal from his current employers. Jurgen Klopp is keen to bolster his forward line in the summer and has been tracking Luan for almost a year.
The Gremio chief has out rightly dismissed the report by suggesting that there has been no offer from the Merseyside club for Luan, who has just one-year remaining on his current deal. The player's agent however has confirmed holding talks with the Reds along with other clubs, but echoed the club chiefs comments regarding there not being a concrete offer for the forward's services.
"Luan is a player who said he would have proposals but so far none have come, except for one about three years ago when he was on a different level," Bolzan said, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
"We have no approach, no official proposal (from Liverpool). We have absolutely no concrete proposal."
"We do talk to Liverpool, as we talk to other clubs as well, but there is no proposal," Jair Peixoto said regarding talks with Liverpool and other clubs.
Luan is yet to make his senior debut for Brazil but was part of the squad that won gold at the Rio Olympics last summer. The 24-year-old has been dubbed the new Ronaldinho and can play anywhere across the front three, which will suit Klopp's preferred 4-3-3 formation.
Liverpool seems an attractive proposition for players from Brazil owing to the presence of Brazil internationals Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Lucas Leiva, who signed for the Reds from Gremio in 2007.
