Arsenal not interested in Barnetta

The 23-year-old has been linked with both Portsmouth and Arsenal in recent months.

“There has been no contact with Arsenal whatsoever,” Voege told Setanta Sports. “The story is a complete fabrication.

“Portsmouth tried to sign the player in the January transfer window, but Bayer did not want to sell and that was that.

“Since then I have had no contact with any Premier League clubs.

“Lazio and Valencia have both approached me regarding his availability, but it is his dream to play in The Premier League.”
