Ezequiel Lavezzi's future at Napoli will not be decided by European qualification, insists his agent.

Alejandro Mazzoni said: "Lavezzi wants to stay in Naples. He loves the city, the fans, the shirt and wants to stay here regardless of whether they succeed or not in reaching the goal of the UEFA Cup.

"It is obvious that he should raise the interest of several clubs, including some Italian ones, but at this moment there is nothing."
