Napoli striker Fabio Quagliarella insists he wants to stay at the club, despite speculation linking him with a transfer.
The 27-year-old has been linked with Russian clubs Rubin Kazan, Zenit St Petersburg and Spartak Moscow, who are all reportedly lining up big-money offers for the frontman.
Quagliarella was one of the few players to impress for Italy during this summer's World Cup, as the Azzurri crashed out in the group stage of the tournament.
He states that he loves Napoli and wants to remain with the Serie A outfit, and hopes the club want him to stay too.
"Napoli is my team, my shirt. The club that I wanted since I was a child, which I chose for love," he told Corriere del Mezzogiorno.
"The Russian clubs? I have played against them several times and I scored versus Spartak Moscow and Zenit.
"I have no intention of leaving Napoli. But if the club decides otherwise, I cannot do anything.
"I'd stay forever, but they will decide whether to evaluate offers and if they propose them to me. I love my fans and I love Naples. I hope the club doesn't do crazy things."
Meanwhile, fellow Napoli forward Ezequiel Lavezzi also says he wants to stay at the club.
The Argentinian striker said: "In Naples I'm maturing and I am fine, I want to stay there."
