Blues striker target staying put

Last Updated: Wed, 12 Feb 2014 16:14

Gonzalo Higuain has ruled out a move to Chelsea after revealing he plans to see out the remainder of his contract with Napoli.

The Argentina striker, who was a reported target of Jose Mourinho in the winter transfer market, is Napoli's top scorer this season with 12 goals in 22 Serie A games.

Mourinho could have been lining up a summer swoop for the striker, who he worked with at Real Madrid, but he may have to look elsewhere with his search for new firepower in the summer.

"My future is at Napoli," Higuain said to Gazzetta dello Sport. "I have a contract with Napoli for another four years and I am treated like a king here.

"This is an important time for me and for my career. I've been playing at the highest level for eight years and I feel physically well and there's a great atmosphere in Naples."
