Sampdoria ace Pazzini insists no Chelsea contact

Sampdoria striker Giampaolo Pazzini has dismissed talk of a summer move to Chelsea.

Pazzini is Samp's top scorer with 11 league goals this season and his performances have not gone unnoticed with the Italy international also a reported target of Chelsea.

However, Pazzini has denied those rumours.

"I have not been contacted by anyone and (Chelsea manager Carlo) Ancelotti has not called me," said the 25-year-old.

"I am happy at Sampdoria and I feel really good playing in Italy.

"The Serie A, with all its defects is a league that I really like."

The Italy international is under contract with Sampdoria until June 2012.
