Nikola Zigic insists he is focused on his career with Racing Santander despite speculation linking him with moves to Juventus and Tottenham.
The giant Serbian striker has been in outstanding form for the Liga's surprise package this season and made more headlines on Sunday when he claimed a hat-trick against Athletic Bilbao.
Reports claim representatives from both Juve and Spurs were in attendance and they cannot fail to have been impressed by the 6ft 7in striker's performance in his team's remarkable 5-4 win.
Zigic admits the recent press speculation is flattering but is adamant he remains focused on his career at El Sardinero.
"I am tired of the rumours but happy in some ways because it means my performances are being appreciated. However I am focused on Racing," Zigic told the Spanish press.
Racing's calculated gamble on a player who had a disappointing World Cup campaign for Serbia has paid off spectacularly and the club would be loath to part with him after just one season.
"No one has spoken to us," a club spokesman told the Spanish press. "The situation remains clear. Zigic is our player."
