No Lichsteiner-Juve meeting

Stephan Lichtsteiner's agent has dismissed the notion that he has secretly met Juventus transfer chief Beppe Marotta.

Suggestions this week alleged that talks had already started between the Lazio player's agent brother and the Old Lady, but that claim has been rejected.

"I haven't spoken with Juventus and I have not had a secret meeting with Marotta," Marco Lichsteiner told La Lazio Siamo Noi.

"My brother has a contract at Lazio until June 2013 and we respect President Claudio Lotito. Therefore we will speak with him first.

"If Stephan leaves Lazio he will do so with respect and dignity. We owe that to the club and the fans."

Juve are looking for a new right-back and the Swiss international is one of several full-backs linked.

Lichsteiner does have a €12m buy-out clause in his contract, but whispers suggest that Juve only want to pay around €7m.
