Both clubs insist they have rights over the Italian international's future.
"The lad is exceptional both on the field and off it. He is in a co-ownership agreement with Udinese, so whoever wants him must also speak to their patron Giampaolo Pozzo."

"It is basically a legal loophole to say he is on loan and so there is absolutely no co-ownership with Livorno. Spinelli is wrong."
