Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Prade has dismissed claims he is after QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

The Brazilian gloveman has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for La Viola but Prade has poured cold water over the rumours.

"I have never contacted either QPR or the agent of the Brazilian goalkeeper," he told Sky Sport Italia.

Cesar, who joined the R's from Inter Milan last summer, was also linked with Arsenal and Napoli earlier this summer.
