AC Milan are yet to make a bid for Chelsea target Vlad Chiriches, according to the player's agent.
Serie A giants Milan are front-runners for the 23-year-old, but his agent Victor Becali says they have not submitted an offer for his client.
"Steaua declined Milan's offer for Chiriches? It is absolutely not true," Becali told TuttoMercatoWeb.
"AC Milan have not yet submitted any proposal for the player. It is only an invention of the Romanian press. I can confirm that Milan are following the boy, but they have never talked about money. Chiriches is a very strong player, a fast, modern defender.
"It is up to the Rossoneri (Milan) to make their evaluations and decide whether to step up their interest in January or in time for next season.
"Are there other clubs in competition with Milan? Nothing definite. Chiriches is in fact liked by other Italian clubs, some British and Zenit St Petersburg."
