The agent of Lazio striker Ciro Immobile says he’s laughed off talk of a January move to Chelsea.

Immobile was linked with Chelsea in yesterday’s English press.

“We had a good laugh together over that, including the Chelsea rumour,” agent Marco Sommella told TMW Radio.

“I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank the club for that renewal. The President and director Igli Tare rewarded the lad, who has become the highest-paid player in the Claudio Lotito era. Many great players have passed through and this deal proves the reciprocal bond between Immobile and Lazio.

“It also went well last season, but this term the Biancocelesti have started even better. We are only at the beginning, it’ll be difficult, but it’s a great period of form.”
