Julio Baptista's agent has rejected reports linking the Roma forward with a possible move to West Ham.

Reports in England have claimed West Ham are lining up a move for the former Arsenal loanee as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Baptista's representative, Herminio Menendez, insists there have been no enquiries for the player and that the South American will stay at the Stadio Olimpico.

"There is a lot of talk about nothing," Menendez told

"There are no negotiations surrounding Julio. As a result, we should all expect Baptista to remain in Giallorosso.

"At this moment in time, I can confirm that Julio Baptista will 100 per cent stay with Roma.

"I have no news about Julio. I haven't spoken to anyone and I don't understand why so much is being discussed about Julio leaving Roma.

"I've heard from nobody, not even Inter."
