Having earlier outlined Johan Djourou, Alex Song and Jon Aarne Riise as targets, Riise`s agent has come out to deny the strength of the transfer, instead insisting his charge is happy in the Eternal City. The former Liverpool man has been in and out of the Giallorossi side of late and his agent said:

“He does not know anything about that and does not think about such speculations. John Arne is concentrating on his deal with Roma. He is happy at the club.”

Riise himself had earlier declared that he is happy in Italy:

‘I have heard that some speculate that I am on the way back to England. That is nonsense. I am enjoying myself more and more at Roma. I have the patience and I am getting more used to the Roma jersey.’
