Udinese have turned down a €3.5m offer from Fiorentina for talismanic captain Antonio Di Natale.
Radio Blu have confirmed that the Viola tabled the bid over the winter break, but the Zebrette and the 35-year-old himself refused the offer, preferring to stay put.
The Italy international has been at Stadio Friuli since 2004 and has scored over 150 League goals for the club.
The Tuscan side meanwhile have since signed Villarreal forward Giuseppe Rossi.
