Udinese have outbid Sampdoria in a tender to gain the rights to striker Fabio Quagliarella who has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
Quagliarella scored twice for Italy against Lithuania on 6 June
Both Italian sides held the rights to the 23-year-old Quagliarella's rights, who played for Sampdoria last season.
"For now I'm an Udinese player. The club has invested a lot in me, I doubt they'll let me go," said the striker.
United had been linked with a £10m move for the Italian international striker, who scored 13 league goals last season.
Neither Udinese or Sampdoria could agree on where Quagliarella should play this season, so in accordance with Italian league rules a tender was held to decide his destination.
Quagliarella made his first start for Italy against Lithuania in the recent Euro 2008 qualifier and scored two stunning goals in a 2-0 victory.
