Fulham midfielder Patjam Kasami claims he received an offer from Juventus during the January transfer window, but is determined to fight for his place at Craven Cottage.
The 19-year-old joined Fulham on a four-year contract from Palermo last summer, but has yet to make a sustained impact in Martin Jol's side.
He has made 16 appearances in all competitions for the Cottagers, but has featured only once in 2012 as a late substitute in the FA Cup.
The Switzerland Under 21 international was offered the chance to return to Serie A last month after title contenders Juventus showed an interest.
However, while Kasami was flattered to be a target for the Old Lady, he is eager to make his mark in the Premier League with Fulham.
"I am honoured to have received an offer from Juventus, which is a great club," Kasami told Blick.
"But I am halfway through my first season at Fulham and, right now, I don't want to go away.
"Lately, I'm not playing a lot and I'm not happy with this situation, but I'd rather stay and wait for my chance."
