FC Nantes president Waldémar Kita denied on Monday reports that his side is eager to sign Barie's Algerian striker Abdelkader Ghezzal.
Italian magazine la Gazzetta dello Sport had claimed that Nantes had showed interest in the striker..
"Ghezzal is not in Nantes' summer shopping list," Kita confirmed to French channel France 3.
The 28-year-old, who currently plays at Serie 2 side Bari, is looking to exit the Italian side for a first division club.
The international striker was loaned to Spanish side Levande last season but he returned to Bari where he is under contract until 2014.
