Mauro Zarate's agent insists his client has no interest in securing a New Year move away from Lazio.
The Argentine striker is currently on loan at the Rome-based club from Qatari outfit Al-Sadd.
Having adapted impressively to the rigours of Serie A life, Lazio are understandably keen to tie him down to a permanent deal.
However, the 21-year-old, who enjoyed a spell at Birmingham last season, is attracting interest from a host of top clubs.
English eyes are said to be tracking his availability, while Spanish giants Real Madrid are also believed to be keen as they look to bring in cover for the injured Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Zarate, though, appears happy to remain in Italy, with his representative adamant that a deal can be reached with Lazio at the end of the current campaign.
"Mauro wants to stay, he feels really good at Lazio and has no intention of quitting," Luis Ruzzi told Gazzetta dello Sport.
Ruzzi was also quick to play down reports linking Zarate with a surprise move to reigning Primera Liga champions Real.
"Real have never made contact with us," he added.
"(Lazio president, Claudio) Lotito has assured us that he will use the option to sign Mauro next summer and we have no reason to doubt this.
"Mauro has a contract with Lazio until June and he will remain here for a long time providing Lotito keeps his promises.
"I believe he will stay because Lotito always keeps his promises."
