Antonio Candreva's agent has played down speculation linking the Italian midfielder with a move to West Ham.
Hammers coach Gianfranco Zola has been linked with a move for the 22-year-old Livorno player.
He coached the midfielder while involved with the Italy Under 21 squad, but Candreva's agent Andrea Moretti says they are not in negotiations.
Moretti told TuttoPremier.it: "There has been no contact.
"It's true that Zola knows Antonio well having coached him in the Italy U21 squad, but to infer from this that we are in negotiations, is a long way away."
Candreva has made 33 appearances for Livorno since joining the Amaranto outfit on loan from Udinese in the summer of 2008.
