After handing the Italian outfit almost â‚¬30m for the player in the summer, the strikerâ€™s present side are keeping a tight grip on him.
â€śItâ€™s impossible to imagine such a scenario, not even in your worst nightmare,â€ť said Anzhi technical director German Chistiakov.
â€śAt the time being suggested, Etoâ€™o will be preparing for the season with Anzhi and heâ€™ll do so with all of his professionalism.â€ť
Zenit St Petersburg boss Luciano Spalletti has also ridiculed the rumour.
â€śThis story is just journalistic invention,â€ť the Italian tactician noted. â€śIt would be difficult for such a move to be done, I donâ€™t think it could be done.
â€śIt would also be an admission of an error by Inter. Signing Etoâ€™o would mean that the club donâ€™t have faith in their current players.â€ť
