Napoli hold firm on Hamsik
AC Milan target Marek Hamsik will only leave Napoli this summer if the club receive an offer too good to turn down, according to president Aurelio De Laurentiis. The Slovakia international has been strongly linked with a move to the San Siro this month.
Hamsik is under contract at Napoli for another four seasons and was a key factor in their third-placed finish in Serie A last term. "When I say that Hamsik is not for sale I mean it," De Laurentiis told Gazzetta dello Sport. "However, if an offer that you cannot turn down arrives, we will listen to it."
"If anyone wants to sit down at my very expensive table, they can go ahead and do it. If the offers are similar to the value of the player we can discuss it. Marek is a great player, a goalscoring midfielder, who is among the best in his role alongside (Steven) Gerrard and (Frank) Lampard. If anyone wants him, they need to surprise me."
The 23-year-old midfielder joined Napoli from Brescia in 2007 and scored 11 goals in 37 league appearances last season. Napoli will play in the UEFA Champions League next term.
