BRUSSELS, Jan 22 (Reuters ) - Belgian imaging technology group Agfa-Gevaert (AGFB.BR) is in talks with banks that want more guarantees to cover short-term loans to the company, business daily De Tijd reported on Thursday.

De Tijd said this could involve capitalising up to 200 million euros ($260 million) of receivables due to the company from customers. The newspaper also said it understood the company was not facing liquidity problems.

Agfa, which specialises in hospital imaging systems and top-end printers for publishers and newspapers, was not immediately available for comment. (Writing by Philip Blenkinsop, editing by Dan Lalor)
