After spending last season on loan at PSG, Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi refused to speculate on where he may be playing next season.

The 30 year-old has spent the previous eighteen months on loan, away from his boyhood club with Valencia and PSG, respectively. Though, it’s widely expected that the Giallorossi will try to sell him permanently once the transfer window officially reopens.

Speaking at a press conference held earlier today, the Italian insisted that he wasn’t focused on his club future as Italy prepare for their opening fixture of Euro 2020.

“I don’t read any of the rumors or speculation, so it really doesn’t have much of an affect on me,” he said today at Coverciano.

“I’m only focused on the Euro right now. Once this is completed, then I’ll make my evaluations. Mourinho? I haven’t thought about him, I’ll do so later.”

The defender then discussed the Azzurri and their prospects in the upcoming Euro competition, where he is expected to feature as the first choice right-back for manager Roberto Mancini.

“I’m very eager for Friday (versus Turkey). It will be emotional to return to the Olimpico, a place that has given me so much – even if the stadium won’t be very full. We’ve prepared well for this game, though, we must remember that they have very strong players such as Yilmaz.”

He added, “Hopefully we can have a good performance. We’ve had an extra year to prepare for this competition and we’ve been on a good run lately. We must be focused on giving everything we have.”
