Daniele Baselli has played down links of an exit from Atalanta this summer, saying he has not been contacted by other clubs.
The midfielder headed into the summer with strong links to both Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus, but indicates he expects to start 2014-15 with La Dea.
“I’ve not had any contact with other clubs, not even with the big sides,” Baselli, 22, has told Sky Sport Italia today.
“I do not understand the reasons for all this talk around me and my future.
“And whilst there are certain links that I enjoy, I am at Atalanta, where last year I did well.
“Here I am happy and I see no reason to change my environment.
“The continued focus on young people? I believe that is right and in this way it can most definitely be to my advantage.”
