Giuseppe Rossi won't be making a shock last minute move from Villarreal to Napoli, his agent concedes.
The Azzurri have made no secret of their admiration for the striker, but he won't be heading to Serie A before the transfer window closes.
"I publicly thanked President Aurelio De Laurentiis for his kind words about the player," Federico Pastorello told Radio Kiss Kiss.
"However, Giuseppe is not on the transfer market and his Spanish club have made that very clear.
"Nevertheless, in life, you never know what might happen in the future."
The Italian international was linked heavily with Barcelona and Juventus earlier this summer, but both proposed moves collapsed.
