Catania forward Maxi Lopez has revealed his desire to remain in Italy’s top flight in case he leaves the Elephants.
The Argentine striker has spent last six months on loan at AC Milan, but the Rossoneri opted against making his loan deal permanent.
The player has already set his sights on leaving Stadio Angelo Massimino, but that doesn’t mean he is ready to leave Serie A.
“I would like to stay in Serie A, as I am very happy in Italy. If the situation arises, then I’ll also evaluate any overseas offers,” Lopez said to Sky Sport Italia.
The experienced forward was recently linked with both Parma and Napoli, but he is adamant no concrete offers have arrived.
“Do Parma and Napoli want me? That’s pleasing to know, but for now there is nothing concrete. I have not received any proposals.”
The 28-year-old started his professional career at River Plate and spent four years with the Millionaires before joining Barcelona in 2005.
The Argentine never quite managed to fulfill his potential at Camp Nou and enjoyed spells with Mallorca, Moscow and Gremio before signing for Catania.
Maxi Lopez has scored 22 goals in 64 Serie A games for the Elephants, while he bagged two goals in eight league games for Milan.
