New Zenit St Petersburg coach Luciano Spalletti is chasing Lazio striker Tommaso Rocchi.
Rocchi's agent admits his client has been a long-term target for Spalletti, even when he was coach of Roma.
"I don't want to talk about the transfer market yet," said agent Oscar Damiani.
"To be honest I have not received an offer from the Russians. But I can say something, I know for sure that when Spalletti was with the Giallorossi he tried to sign Tommaso.
"Obviously it was an impossible negotiation which would have never gone through.
