Inter Milan say they will not sell captain Mauro Icardi this summer.
Napoli reportedly made an offer for the forward as they look to replace Gonzalo Higuain, who left to join Juventus in a £75.3m deal on Tuesday.
Arsenal have been previously been linked with a move for Icardi, but Inter president Erick Thohir told Inter Channel: "We're not going to sell Icardi. We've received offers - from Napoli too - but we're not going to sell him.
"We extended his contract a year ago. We're like a family and we can always talk if there are problems or discuss what we'd like to achieve together in future.
"He's our captain and an important player for us. We're very happy with him."
Icardi was handed the captain's armband a year ago but it did not stop speculation surrounding his future for much of last season.
Inter are currently on a pre-season tour of the United States.
