Midfielder Stefano Mauri insists he wants to stay at Lazio despite speculation linking him with a Russian move.
Zenit St Petersburg are thought to be chasing the Italy international's signature, with his agent revealing their interest late last month.
However 31-year-old Mauri, who arrived at the Stadio Olimpico from Udinese in 2006, claims no concrete offers have been made, and is happy to carry on with the Biancocelesti.
He told Sky Sport Italia: "I heard the rumours, but there is nothing concrete and I've always said that I want to stay with Lazio.
"I extended my contract last year, I have a good relationship with the staff and with the team and I want to stay.
"However, with the transfer market you never know. I told my agent I want to be informed only if there is something really concrete and in an advanced stage.
"He hasn't told me anything and therefore it means that they are just rumours and nothing more."
