Sassuolo forward Simone Zaza has warned Tottenham Hotspur, among others, that he will only leave the Serie A club for a "great team" in the summer transfer window.
Zaza scored 11 league goals this season, including a double as his side beat Genoa on the final day of the campaign, and has been linked with a move away from the Italian minnows.
Zaza's former club Juventus and Spurs are both understood to be interested in signing the player, who should be available for a fee of around £13m.
Although the 23 year old is not ready to address his future until next week, he has high expectations over his next club.
"Is this my last match for the club? I do not know and I don't want to think about it, these are things we will talk about next week" he told Tuttomercatoweb. "The very idea of leaving this club makes me sad.
"I will always thank this club and all the people of Sassuolo, I'm sure I will never find an atmosphere like this anywhere else.
"I know that Juventus want me, however I always said I would leave Sassuolo only for a great team. The interest makes me proud."
Tottenham confirmed their first signing of the summer on 29 May when they announced the capture of Kevin Wimmer from Cologne, who will arrive at the club on 1 July.
Further additions are expected this summer after chairman Daniel Levy pledged to back manager Mauricio Pochettino in the transfer market.
"We are all eager to be challenging at a higher level," he said.
"While the popular view may be to spend money in excess of earnings or find a philanthropic investor to fund transfers, those scenarios are simply not possible under the new world of Financial Fair Play rules whereby clubs can only spend revenues generated through operations.
"That said, this summer we shall look to make changes to support Pochettino's plans for next season."
Despite finishing outside the Champions League qualifying places, Spurs enjoyed an encouraging campaign that saw them finish fifth in the Premier League above Southampton and Liverpool, as well as qualifying for the Europa League.
