Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has quashed stories the club are looking to sign wantaway Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo.

Italian sources claimed earlier on Tuesday that the Bundesliga giants were after the former Fiorentina star, who is seemingly leaving Juventus after just two seasons at the club.

The German club have now rejected such stories, claiming they have no interest in the combative midfielder.

I cannot say anything about such news. I can only give a clear denial," Zorc told Germany.

Meanwhile, Sky Sport 24 is suggesting that both Paris Saint-Germain and Galatasaray are vying to sign the former Fiorentina man, with the Turkish side having allegedly come to an agreement with the Brazil international already.

Paulo Ricart, who represents Melo in Brazil, stated on Monday the midfielder was targeting a return home, but the player himself has now indicated he will continue in Europe.

"Everything was almost settled with Sao Paulo, but then offers came from European clubs and one of them made me an offer which will increase my salary a lot," a statement from Melo reads.

"We are finalising details and it could all be completed in the next days."

Melo, who joined Juventus from Fiorentina in 2009 for €25 million, will reportedly be allowed to leave for a fee of just €10m.
