The agent of Napoli playmaker Ezequiel Lavezzi has rubbished reports claiming his client has held talks with Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti.
The Argentina international is a regular in transfer gossip columns, with his ability attracting plenty of admiring glances.
Each passing window brings a fresh round of rumours, and speculation has already begun to circulate ahead of the summer.
It has been suggested that Lavezzi could be a top target for Inter, as they attempt to piece together a side capable of reclaiming the Serie A title.
It was reported that Inter officials had already met with the South American, but Alejandro Mazzoni has moved quickly to quash such rumours.
Lavezzi's representative told Radio CRC: "Lavezzi has never told me that he wants to leave Napoli and he has never met with Inter president Massimo Moratti.
"I don't know the Inter president either. I do know (Marco) Branca and (Piero) Ausilio, but I know all sporting directors as I am the agent of Lavezzi and 39 other players.
"I'm frequently in Milan and I can confirm that Ezequiel was in Milan on the weekend that the Lecce-Napoli game was postponed, but he was there for personal reasons."
