PSV Eindhoven winger Dries Mertens has moved to deny rumours linking him with a January switch to Liverpool.
The Premier League side are eager to reinforce the attacking department in the next transfer window and the Belgian forward has been mentioned as one of the targets.
The player has refused to comment on the speculation, but reveals he is interested in leaving Eindhoven.
“As it is, I am very happy at PSV”, Mertens told Belgian newspaper Gazet Van Antwerpen. “We have a very good team, the atmosphere is great and I am close to Belgium.”
The 25-year-old joined the Dutch giants from Utrecht in the summer of 2011 and quickly developed into a key player at Philips Stadium.
The player had a dream start to his career at PSV Eindhoven, scoring 21 goals and producing 16 assists in 33 Eredivisie games.
Mertens has had a bright start to the new campaign as well, netting 4 times in 7 league appearances for PSV.
