thumbnail Hello,

The striker has been linked with a move to the Rossoneri but the player's representative says there has been no concrete offer as yet

The agent of Sampdoria star Simone Zaza has revealed there has been no "direct contact" between his client and rumoured suitors AC Milan.

Christian Maifredi claims a host of big clubs are looking at the striker, who has scored 18 goals on loan at Serie B outfit Ascoli, but admits that no firm offer has yet been made for his services.

"His desire is to play, this is what I always said. Milan? I have not had direct contact. The choice will be with one of these big clubs who are looking at him.” Maifredi told Radio Sportiva.

“Let us say that the ideal [scenario] is to now move to a top club and then go out on loan or be co-owned by another party.”

The 21-year-old's contract with the Blucerchiati expires in June 2014 but Maifredi refused to rule out Zaza remaining with his current employers beyond his present deal.

“The extension with Sampdoria? [It is] hard to tell, because in football everything changes very quickly,” Maifredi added.

Zaza has represented Italy at every age group from Under-16 to Under-21 but is yet to represent the full national side.
