Rudi Garcia insists Roma are in no hurry to complete the signing of Edin Dzeko from Manchester City when asked about links with the striker on Friday.
The Italian club's sporting director, Walter Sabatini, confirmed last week that the club are attempting to buy the Bosnia-Herzegovina international.
The striker told Goal in June that he will not look to force a move away from the Etihad Stadium despite Roma's interest and Garcia was tight-lipped when quizzed on the prospective deal by reporters.
"I will not talk about the market now," he said. "What is certain is that we have always worked in harmony with James Pallotta and Sabatini.
"Obviously, new players will come but we do not have to rush. We try to sign three players for roles that are clearly defined but we must take the right players."
Dzeko completed 90 minutes just twice in the Premier League in 2014-15 but made 22 appearances in total, scoring four goals.
