Prandelli: No Hammers move for Montolivo

Fiorentina coach Cesare Prandelli has insisted midfielder Riccardo Montolivo will not be sold to West Ham or any other club in January.

New Hammers manager Gianfranco Zola is a great admirer of the Italian playmaker and reports have linked the 23-year-old with a move to Upton Park in January in a transfer deal worth £12million.

"West Ham are interested in Montolivo?" Prandelli told Sky Italia. "It's not a big offer.

"I'm convinced this season that Riccardo will have a great season.

"We are asking him to take on responsibility. He came back from the Olympics a little tired, but he has recovered.

"Today, when he entered the pitch, he did good things. We are asking him to take more responsibility and he's doing this."

Montolivo is under contract with the Florence outfit until June 2012 and has been a regular in Prandelli's side since last season.
