Lazio sporting director Igli Tare claims that Atalanta striker German Denis is not a summer transfer target for the club.
The Argentine hitman has been paired with the capital outfit, but the official maintains he’s not on their wish-list.
“There is no truth in the Denis to Lazio stories,” the former striker noted to Sky Sport Italia. “We’ll start making moves on the transfer market when the time is right.
“However, for now, all we are thinking about is this weekend’s Coppa Italia Final against Roma. Then we’ll see what opportunities arise.”
Denis is a 31-year-old former Napoli and Udinese forward who has regularly found the net in Serie A over the last two seasons.
He netted 16 goals in 33 ties in 2011-12, while he’s just ended the present campaign with 15 in 36 matches.
