Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic has claimed that he turned down a move to China in the January transfer window because he 'does not believe that he is worth £42.5m'.
Kalinic is understood to have been a target for Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian, who were reportedly prepared to activate the Croatian international's release clause.
The 29-year-old, however, has hinted that he would have been uncomfortable with such a high price-tag and therefore decided to remain with his Italian club.
"It would have been a done deal if I had said yes, even if I'm not sure what the club would have said," Kalinic told Corrierre della Sera.
"[Tianjin manager Fabio] Cannavaro called me, but for me the issue closed and has never been reopened. I'm not really worth the €50m (£42.5m) release clause and I doubt anyone will spend that for me."
Former Blackburn Rovers striker Kalinic has scored 14 times in 29 appearances for Fiorentina this season.
