Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain is ducking questions about Chelsea's pursuit.

The 26-year-old is unaware of the rumours and insists he is happy at Napoli.

He said: “For someone like me, who loves this sport, Naples is a wonderful place. This is an incredible city where football comes first, followed by everything else.

“The fans live for football. Thank God they loved me straight away because the Neapolitans are very passionate and I find that enchanting.

"The Neapolitans have a special affection for Argentines. They are similar to us as well as having Diego Maradona in their hearts.

"In Italy, the game is more tactical, so it is harder to find space. I am sure my own game is improving by playing in Serie A. I want to help Napoli to grow and make history for this team."
