Chelsea target Ezequiel Lavezzi insists he will not leave Napoli in the near future.
The Argentinian striker has been linked with a move to the Premiership with Chelsea among the clubs keen to acquire his services, but has reiterated his desire to stay in Italy.
"I am happy at Napoli," said Lavezzi."I like the city of Naples and the team. I will remain here, it's better here than going to England."
The 23-year-old joined Napoli in the summer of 2007 from San Lorenzo in his homeland and has enjoyed a starring role with the Serie A outfit, earning a call up from Argentina.
However, Lavezzi, who is under contract until 2013, admits the club has the final say on his future.
"My future depends on the club," he said."I have a contract but I insist I am very happy here."
Lavezzi has struck four league goals this campaign to help the Naples-based outfit to remain fourth in the Serie A standings.
