Midfield ace Marek Hamsik has put transfer talk to one side and is concentrating on helping Napoli beat Liverpool on Thursday.
The 23-year-old, who recently signed a new deal to keep him at the Serie A outfit until 2015, has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
While the Slovakia midfielder will have a chance to further showcase his qualities at Anfield in the Europa League Group K clash, he simply wants to focus on matters on the pitch.
Hamsik said: "This isn't really about individuals, it is about the group and it is an important game for Napoli.
"It will be difficult because when you play in Europe there are no easy games.
"I know the Premier League is a great league and has a wonderful atmosphere.
"At the moment there are (transfer) rumours and that is all. I'm quite relaxed about the situation and I just want to play well for Napoli.
"These kind of games help us to grow and mature as players."
