Napoli chief denies Juventus option for Hamsik

Napoli sports chief Pierpaolo Marino has dismissed talk of Juventus gaining first refusal on midfielder Marek Hamsik.

"Nobody is touching Hamsik, Ezequiel Lavezzi or Walter Gargano," he stated on Radio Kiss Kiss.

"I have an excellent relationship with my Juve counterpart Alessio Secco, but everything that has been written in the newspapers is without grounds.

"There is no meeting with the Bianconeri and they are just another club who might be interested in our players.

"Co-ownership deals will be resolved in June and we hope that our lads will grow here and after five years will renew and continue to grow."
