Atalanta director general Pierpaolo Marino has rubbished reports that German Denis is on his way to Palermo.
“I’m really tired of this Denis ‘hoax’. German will not be leaving Bergamo,” Marino wrote on his Twitter account. “Whoever is saying these things does not love Atalanta.”
The Argentine striker is the Nerazzurri’s top scorer this season with seven goals in 22 League games so far.
Denis, formerly of Napoli and Udinese, scored 16 in 33 top-flight games last season.
