Everton winger Bernard has rubbished speculation that he could be set to leave the club and join Serie A outfit Roma.
Reports in Italy last week suggested that the diminutive 27-year-old had fallen out with manager Carlo Ancelotti and has subsequently been offered to Roma.
Everton were thought to be asking for a fee of around £17.5m for Bernard, but the player himself has now hit out at the rumours.
Addressing the reports on Instagram, Bernard wrote: "This is a lie."
The Brazilian has made 22 appearances for Everton across all competitions this season, scoring three goals and assisting two more.
