Livorno 'not interested in selling Lucarelli'
Livorno president Aldo Spinelli claims to have turned down a Tottenham bid for striker Cristiano Lucarelli.
The 29-year-old was last season's top scorer in Serie A with 24 goals.
However Livorno insist they have no intention of selling Lucarelli to Tottenham or any other club.
'We received an official offer from Lucarelli's agent,' said Spinelli.
'But we have not given much thought to the offer made by Tottenham because we are not interested in selling Lucarelli.'
Lucarelli, who is under contract until 2009, scored 29 goals in 38 matches during the 2003-04 campaign to help Livorno gain promotion to the top-flight.
He continued that good form in Serie A last season as Livorno finished eighth.
'We have constructed the team around him and he is a very important player for us,' Spinelli added.
'I have told the player's agent that no amount of money will make me change my mind.
'For me, it's a closed chapter, as long as I am in charge of Livorno, either Lucarelli plays for us or he watches the rest of his team-mates play.'
