Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik’s agent has added to speculation linking the heavily coveted Serie A star with a move to England this summer.
A number of clubs have been linked with the 23-year-old Slovakian international including Manchester United, Chelsea and most recently Liverpool.
Having joined Napoli from Brescia in 2007, for a fee of €5.5 million, Hamsik has notched up 38 goals in 130 appearances for the club, including eight strikes in 24 appearances this season.
His fine form has prompted scouts from various clubs across Europe to cast their eye over the attacking midfield talent, but it is Liverpool who have recently emerged as the side to be showing the most interest.
Juri Venglos, who represents Hamsik confirmed, "He is going through a positive period, he has made some mistakes, but during a season it can happen.”
However, when approached about the possibility of Hamsik completing a transfer this summer specifically, Venglos was a lot more cautious.
Speaking to Radio CRC he said, "All the market voices arriving are just speculation. Hamsik is not listening to all the market voices as he is totally focused on the end of season."
Despite the player agent’s comments, Liverpool Director of Football Strategy Damien Comolli is still intent on pursuing the highly rated star, as the Reds look to continue their recruitment drive with a view to returning the Anfield club to its former glories.
Liverpool fans will be excited by the prospect of attracting the brightest young talent that Europe has to offer, and under the stewardship of Kenny Dalglish, the Reds’ future certainly looks bright.
Hamsik’s immediate priority is to try and help his Napoli side win some silverware as they can challenge for the Scudetto this season and look set to qualify for the Champions League.
But when asked about his long-term future, Venglos made little effort to end speculation.
"He wants to build his future with Napoli. But will he remain forever? Anything is possible."
