Chievo sporting director Giovanni Sartori has denied claims that Marco Andreolli has been targeted by former club Inter Milan.
The 26-year-old began his career at San Siro before moving first to Roma and then on loan to Vicenza and Sassuolo.
Having established himself at Chievo, rumours have circulated that the player could be set to depart for Inter, with the defender set to become a free agent when his contract expires in June.
“I’m continuing to hear the rumours and the whispers, but I have never heard from Inter,” Sartori told TMW.
“It is true that the two presidents of Chievo and Inter know each other well, they have an excellent relationship and speak often, but they have never discussed Andreolli.”
The former Italy under-21 international helped Chievo to a top-10 finish last season, but the club are down in 16th place after 11 league games so far this season.
