The 24-year-old international, who suffered a below-par season with his club and with Brazil in the 2006 World Cup finals, has been linked to a number of top clubs including Manchester United and Real Madrid.
"I'm not leaving Inter Milan but I'm happy to hear that other teams want to sign me," he was quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
"The Inter Milan fans like me a lot and so does the club president. That's why I'm at Inter today."
Adriano is determined to regain his former glory and has said he hopes to make fans proud once more.
"When the Italian championship starts, I want to go back to being the Adriano the fans knew before -- The Emperor," he said.
Adriano, who scored twice for Brazil in this summer's World Cup, said he was not worried about Inter pursuing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Luca Toni.
"Ibra or Toni? It doesn’t change anything," he said.
"It’s important to have players of that quality beside me. Last season I was often too far forward without support."
