Gonzalo Higuain insists he is happy to stay at Napoli despite the interest shown from La Liga giants Barcelona.

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has insisted that he is happy to stay at the San Paolo stadium despite speculation linking him with Barcelona.

The 26-year-old still has four years remaining on his current contract and has dismissed the idea of linking up with Argentina teammate Lionel Messi.

Higuain told reporters: "I am really grateful to Leo (Messi) for his kind words but I have a contract with Napoli that makes me very happy.

"The Partenopei club (Napoli) has always treated me very well since I arrived there."

Higuain almost completed a move to Arsenal last season before signing for Napoli from Real Madrid for a club record £34.5m.
