Internacional insist that Napoli have not made an approach for Leonardo Damiao.

Brazilian side Internacional have insisted that they have not received any contact from Napoli regarding striker Leandro Damiao.

Internacional reportedly rejected a £15m bid from the Serie A side on Wednesday, but comments from the club's president Giovanni Luigi suggest that that was wide of the mark.

"No-one from Napoli has spoken with me and I do not know if they are talking to his agent," Luigi told Radio CRC. "But if I like a football player, I'm going to talk to his club and not with the agent.

"For me there is no negotiation started for Damiao with Napoli, this must be a guess because, I repeat, Napoli have not mentioned this interest either now or in the past.

"How much is he worth? I do not know if I'm going to sell. He should remain here. I believe the player will be here for at least another year."

Damiao has also been linked with Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
