JOHAN Elmander’s future is still shrouded in mystery with Owen Coyle insisting there have been no offers for the top-scorer.

The £8.2million club-record signing could walk away for nothing at the end of the season after failing to agree a new deal to keep him at the Reebok.

Rumours have linked Elmander, who struck his 11th goal of the campaign in the 3-2 FA Cup quarter-final win at Birmingham last weekend, with a move to Italy again this week, with Juventus and Fiorentina reported to be interested.

German club Hoffenheim are also believed to be keen on the out-of-contract striker. But Coyle is adamant no club has contacted Elmander – and hopes the 29-year-old Swede will still be at Bolton next season. The Wanderers manager said: “I don’t deal in rumour and there will be a million rumours out there.

“I deal in fact and the fact is that there has never, ever been one genuine inquiry for Johan.

“If the summer comes about and there is something out there for Johan and his family that he thinks is the right thing for him, then good luck to him.

“I would love him to stay – I enjoy working with him and he enjoys working with me.

”Come the summer, that is when that decision will be made, so conjecture and rumour-mongering I’ll leave to the people who enjoy that sort of thing.”

Elmander is expected to continue on the right wing against Manchester United on Saturday, with cup-tied Daniel Sturridge, who has scored four goals in five games since joining on loan from Chelsea, set to replace Ivan Klasnic up front.
