Sampdoria midfielder Andrea Poli insists he's not obsessed by an Italy call.

Poli has been mentioned for Azzurri selection.

"The national team should not be an obsession," the former Inter player told the Gazzetta dello Sport. "It has never been that for me.

"Instead, I've always seen it as a natural continuation of a process that is going on with my club team. Therefore, I firstly have to do well with the Sampdoria.
