Roma striker Mirko Vucinic deserves to join a 'more prestigious' club than Blackburn, according to his agent.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League and to Roma's Serie A rivals Juventus despite having two years left to run on his contract at Stadio Olimpico.
But Ewood Park is not a potential destination for the Montenegro international, says his representative.
Alessandro Lucci told Sky Italia: "I have not heard anything. For now it's on standby because first we want to understand the intentions of Roma.
"Blackburn talk is just a rumour. It is a respectable club but I think Mirko deserves a more prestigious club."
On the possibility of a switch to Turin, Lucci insisted there had been no contact.
"The two clubs have never spoken," he said.
"I met with Juve, but also for other players. To date there have been no negotiations. Juve are a prestigious club, like Roma.
"Vucinic will either remain in the capital, or will aim for a team of a similar level."
