Italian football federation president Carlo Tavecchio says he is unaware of any plans Antonio Conte might have to join Chelsea.
The Italy head coach has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the summer to replace interim boss Guus Hiddink, with British newspaper reports claiming Conte is close to agreeing a deal to join the Blues after Euro 2016.
His contract with the Italian federation - the FIGC - expires in the summer, and the former Juventus coach has given no public indication he is seeking to renew the deal.

However, Tavecchio, quoted on www.mediagol.it, said: "There is no news about the coach's future. This means that for us nothing has changed."
Conte, 46, guided Juventus to three Serie A titles before resigning in 2014. He was appointed Italy manager just a month later.
