Bologna manager Stefano Pioli has dismissed talk of the Italy job.
Pioli has been at the helm of Bologna for almost two years and he says that, although he is flattered by the talk, he is committed to his current role.
"Sure, I've heard these rumours with attention," he told Sky Italia.
"Being taken into consideration for such an important possibility is good. I'd feel adequate to the task myself.
"But in my plans for the medium and long term, I have other aims for my professional growth, in particular here in Bologna."
