The agent of Maxime Gonalons says that his client chose to stay at Lyon as he did not fancy the battle for a starting role at Napoli.

Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons was not interested in a move to Napoli as he did not feel that he could handle the competition for places, according to his agent.

The 24-year-old, who has six caps for France, was repeatedly linked with the Partenopei over the recent summer transfer window, but agent Frederic Guerra said that his client was wary of a move to Naples.

"There are different parameters you must take into account," Guerra told Papinade.com.

"Max felt fragile and not strong enough to handle the competition he would've faced with a transfer to Napoli. He has to continue his growth process in Ligue 1."

Arsenal were also linked with a move for the defensive midfielder.
