Gokhan Inler will not be leaving Napoli at the end of the season, the player's agent confirms.

Gokhan Inler's agent has rejected claims that the Swiss international is looking to leave Napoli this summer.

Arsenal and Liverpool have both been credited with an interest in the midfielder, who has become a key figure in Partenopei's lineup since his €12m (£10.2m) switch from Udinese in 2011.

However, recent reports suggested that the 28-year-old may be looking for a move away from the Stadio San Paolo after seemingly falling out of favour with coach Walter Mazzarri.

Those rumours have now been quashed by his agent Dino Lamberti, who revealed that Inler has been struggling with an injury which has prevented him from first-team action.

"There has been no disagreement," Lamberti told Radio Crc. "Inler was slightly injured and Mazzarri decided to deploy Blerim Dzemaili instead.

"He has done very well and you shouldn't change a winning team. Gokhan is now almost fully recovered and I'm sure he will recover his place in the team.

"Gokhan is comfortable in Naples and will not move."

Inler has won 60 caps for Switzerland.
