Gianluca Atzori, boss of Serie B side Reggina, says he knows nothing about the links with Genoa and Palermo.
The tactician has been associated with a move to both Serie A clubs recently given that they are likely to make coaching changes over the summer.
"I want to be a Coach when I grow up," Atzori joked with TMW. "However, for the time being, there is nothing concrete.
"I have just been reading about the interest in me via the newspapers."
Atzori is a former defender who got his first shot in Serie A as a Coach with Catania in 2009, but he was sacked after picking up just nine points from 15 games.
He signed for Reggina last summer and they are currently fifth in Serie B.
Palermo are bossed by Delio Rossi at the moment, while Davide Ballardini sits on the Genoa bench.
