Highly rated Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik has reiterated his desire to stay with the club this summer, according to Sky Sports.

The 25-year-old, who has been with the Neapolitan side since joining from Brescia in 2007, has been a key figure in making the club a force in Europe and Serie A and was recently linked with a move away from the San Paolo.

At one point, he was rumoured to have been watched by Chelsea as they sought a potential replacement for Frank Lampard before he agreed new terms with the west London side.

However, the Slovakian international has spoke of his desire to stay with the league runners up and work with Rafa Benitez.

For six seasons we’ve developed together, Napoli and me. We can still climb even higher. I’m comfortable here and I’d like to continue to grow with Napoli,” he said.

Hamsik has been compared to former Juventus and Lazio midfielder Pavel Nedved, though he insists that he sees his style slightly differently.

“Me, Nedved? That’s kind as he worked in midfield but could also score goals,” he added.

“But, I also like players such as Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Zinedine Zidane.”
