Reports in Russia have suggested Anzhi are close to agreeing terms with Inter Milan to acquire Sneijder, 28, on a permanent transfer.

However, Sneijder's agent, Soren Lerby, told Gazzetta dello Sport: "There is no truth in those reports, they are just rumours. There is nothing between Anzhi and Wesley."

Inter have previous with Anzhi having struck an £18.4 million deal to sell Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o to last summer.

Sneijder, who is under contract with Inter until June 2015, scored four goals in 20 league appearances for the Nerazzurri last season, and his future has been the subject of conjecture in recent weeks.
