Highly-rated midfielder set to sign new Napoli deal

Marek Hamsik has dismissed rumours linking him with a move to either Chelsea or Inter Milan. The Napoli midfielder has earned rave reviews for his performances in Serie A this season and a number of top clubs across Europe are thought be tracking his progress. Inter Milan officials have expressed their admiration for the Slovakian, while Chelsea have also been credited with an interest. Hamsik admits it is flattering to be linked with such teams but he is not paying too much attention to the transfer talk. The 22-year-old is happy at Napoli and intends to put an end to the speculation by signing a new deal. "Inter Milan and Chelsea? I liked their match very much. They are two great teams," he told Radio Marte. "Expressions of interest from these clubs are pleasing, but I'm very calm. "I have a meeting next week with the club to renew my contract with Napoli. I cannot wait to sign."
