ENGLISH trio Everton, Middlesbrough and Blackburn are reported to be chasing Vicenza star Lamberto Zauli.
The 30-year-old is currently on loan at Bologna after Vicenza's relegation last season and his performances for The Rossoblu have attracted the interest of a number of clubs.
The skilful midfielder has scored 4 goals in 16 games this season for Bologna and they could face competition for his signature from the English trio.
Bologna press officer Patrizio Caniato admitted that the club were aware of the rumours surrounding Zauli, but that they not received any approaches as he still owned by Vicenza.
"Yes there are rumours, but we are not interested in this affair," Caniato told planetfootball.com. "Zauli is on loan at Bologna, but we do not have ownership of this player.
The Italian's loan deal at Bologna expires at the end of the season and Caniato dismissed reports that they had reached an agreement over his permanent transfer.
"Vicenza have the ownership of this player so these market rumours are their business. Zauli is with us only on loan, we don't have any rights about him. He belongs 100 percent to Vicenza.
Vicenza hope to keep Zauli by winning back their Serie A status this season and they are currently sitting in sixth spot in the table, nine points off the promotion spots.
