Elche president Jose Sepulcre has denied that Everton have made a bid for midfielder Carlos Sanchez.
The Toffees are reported to have made an offer for Sanchez, 28, and agreed a four-year deal with the player.
Sepulcre, however, is adamant that Everton have yet to make any contact with regards to the Colombia international, who started four of his country's games at the World Cup.
"We have no knowledge of any offer from Everton by Carlos Sanchez," Sepulcre told a news conference.
"Moreover, not even the player, who is on holiday after playing in the World Cup, has contacted us to say something about it."
Sanchez, who joined Elche last summer from Valenciennes, was in talks with Bolton, Reading and West Ham two years ago about a move to England.
