Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain has revealed he is keen on staying at Napoli for a considerable amount of time.
Higuain, who moved to Serie A outfit Napoli from Real Madrid for a fee believed to be in the region of £34.5million, was attracting interest from Chelsea during the January transfer window but decided to stay at the Stadio San Paolo.
The 26-year-old Argentine international, who has scored 12 goals in 22 Serie A games since joining Napoli, was identified as the man to improve Chelsea's goalscoring record.
Jose Mourinho was keen on signing a striker as Chelsea strikers Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba have failed to deliver on a regular basis this season.
Chelsea were apparently weighing up a £48million move for Higuain in January but were unable to tempt former Stamford Bridge boss Rafael Benitez into selling his star asset.
And Higuain has ruled out sealing a move to Chelsea by stating his happiness at plying his trade at Napoli.
Speaking to the Italian press, Higuain said: "I want to be like Maradona by first winning the World and the Scudetto with the blue jersey.
"In my heart, I still believe the same title this season, but if we are away we will do everything to take second place.
"My future is in Naples. I have a four year contract, I want to stay here."
