Palermo striker Abel Hernandez insists he's in the dark over interest from AS Roma.

Hernandez says he had no idea that he was wanted by Roma during the summer.

"I knew nothing about it," the Uruguayan told Sky Sport Italia. "I wasn't aware that the Giallorossi were chasing me.

"I was told of the newspaper reports, yet I was busy playing the Copa America with my country and I was just concentrated on that.

"Perhaps my agent knew something about it."
