Caracciolo 'rejected Russian offer'

Andrea Caracciolo “turned down an enticing offer from Russia,” but denies a deal with Parma or Chievo.

The 29-year-old striker is looking for a transfer following Brescia's relegation into Serie B and has been heavily linked with Rubin Kazan and Glasgow Rangers.

“Caracciolo turned down an enticing offer from Russia,” confirmed agent Vincenzo D'Amico.

“Does he want to stay in Italy? We'll see, as first we have to evaluate the proposals that have come in. It will take time.”

The most likely destination is Chievo Verona, although Parma are also named by the media.

“At the moment there have been no official bids, nor enquiries, from Parma. It's just hints and hypotheses from the newspapers.

“What I can say is that we know nothing of any interest from Parma.”
