Bayer Leverkusen have rubbished quotes attributed to Hakan Calhanoglu, in which it was claimed the attacking midfielder has his heart set on a summer move to Chelsea.
Calhanoglu was claimed to have said that he is praying for a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer, amid talk Chelsea want to snap him up.
But Leverkusen are clear that Calhanoglu said nothing of the sort, as a club spokesman rubbished the attributed quotes currently doing the rounds.
