West Ham striker Alessandro Diamanti had rubbished reports that he is set for a return to Italy. Diamanti's agent Lorenzo Marronaro has talked up a potential move back to Serie A for the 27-year-old with Fiorentina reportedly targeting the forward who scored seven times for the Hammers last term.
"Almost certainly I will stay at West Ham, even if my agents are evaluating the various offers," Diamanti told Sky Italia .
"During the market there are many names and rumours, but I feel good here in London.
"In England you can breathe a different climate, especially in the stadiums. It's very different to Italy.
"I miss the Italian league, but I would like to stay here because I feel good."
The striker's agent Marronaro was less certain over his client's future, but has denied any interest from Fiorentina for Diamanti telling Lady Radio: "I won't rule out a return to Italy for Alessandro.
"Any interest from Fiorentina are only rumours because I don't know anything about that.
"All is still for now but I can't exclude anything until the end of the transfer window."
