Lavezzi no interest in Chelsea move

Published Add your comment

Napoli's Ezequiel Lavezzi claims Chelsea are interested in his services but insists he has no interest in joining them.

The 23-year-old forward is one of the key players behind Napoli's strong start to the Serie A campaign this season, winning himself a call-up to the Argentina squad and reportedly attracting the interest of a number of clubs.

But despite being in demand across Europe at the moment, Lavezzi insists he is happy where he is, saying in Gazzetta dello Sport: "I want to stay. I know Chelsea are interested in me but my agent and the club are dealing with all that."

He added: "I don't think there is any intention of letting me go and I'm glad about that, I'm really happy in Napoli."

Lavezzi was among the 23-man squad named by new Argentina coach Diego Maradona for his first game in charge against Scotland on November 19.

The forward revealed he was delighted to have received a call-up, and believes the only way to keep his place in the squad was to stay with his current club.

"At the moment I'm playing well so the call-up has come," he continued.

"I dream of becoming a fixture in the national team even if I realise that we have many good forwards and the competition is tough.

"Napoli will have to help me with this."
