Atalanta sporting director Pierpaolo Marino has dismissed talk of a move to Inter Milan.

New Nerazzurri owner Erick Thohir is said to be looking for a new director to help him with player recruitment.

"I do not get behind these rumours at all," he told reporters.

"I met Thohir at a League meeting, but there was no communication between us.

"All I can say is that Thohir is the same in person as he looks on the television."
