Gokhan Inler's agent claims that his client wants to remain at Napoli, despite much interest in his services from clubs in England, Germany and Turkey.

Inler was strongly linked with Liverpool in last month's transfer window and it remains to be seen if the Reds will rekindle their interest when the window opens again in the summer.

The Switzerland international's suitors will have undoubtedly been alerted by recent criticism of Inler's performances from some quarters, but his agent says that does not affect the midfielder's desire to remain, and he wants to stay at Napoli.

"He always gives his best, but there are circumstances that make him seen less on the pitch and on the pitch he is very sensitive to criticism and this does not sit well on a personal level", Dino Lamberti told Kiss Kiss Napoli.


"He has never said he wants to leave Napoli.

"There have been enquiries from other teams, English, German, Turkish, but he wants to stay in blue.

"He loves playing and living in Naples."

Napoli coach Rafael Benitez has fielded Inler 20 times in Serie A so far this season, as well as including him five times in the club's Champions League group stage campaign.
