De Rossi's future has been the source of constant speculation, despite the fact he only signed a new long-term contract earlier this year.
The midfield ace also shunned a move to Manchester City in the summer, but comments from sporting director Franco Baldini suggested Roma would listen to reasonable offers.
But Zemen insists that he is more than happy with the 29-year-old, saying: "I've never had problems with De Rossi, I don't know who spread this voices, certainly not me, and I think not even Daniele."
Paris Saint Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti is a confirmed admirer too, but Zemen says this does not surprise him.
"Ancelotti wants De Rossi? Daniele is wanted by many, not only by the PSG, he has made an important career, he plays for the national team, I think he could help many teams. However, he is staying at AS Roma."
