The 30-year-old has bagged an impressive 18 goals this season, despite the club being relegated to Serie B, and is also reportedly interesting Roma and Torino.
Chairman Maurizo Zamparini values the player at around £7 million, however the club's press officer Alberto Minazzi has revealed that no firm offers have yet been made for the star.
"These are only rumours at the moment," said Minazzi. "The transfer market links you with every and any club."
"Zamparini has said that he wants to sell the club. We cannot sell or buy anyone at the moment."
Meanwhile, Udinese are also being tipped to make a move for Brescia's £14 million rated marksman Luca Toni.
However, the club are currently being put off the player's high transfer valuation.
President Giampaolo Pozzo may find the cash to buy Toni, if the club can offload injury-plagued Argentinian striker Roberto Sosa.
"I have been injured for a long time," said Sosa, who is rumoured to be interesting Spanish outfits Espanyol and Mallorca. "Obviously I could not score many goals."
