Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik is confident he will sign a new long-term contract with the club before Christmas.
The Slovakia international has attracted interest from several leading clubs across Europe, with Paris St Germain most recently linked with a bid.
Premier League leaders Manchester City are also confirmed admirers of the 24-year-old, but he is set to disappoint his many suitors by agreeing to stay with Napoli.
Hamsik is expecting to meet with Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis in the near future and believes his future will be resolved before the New Year.
"With De Laurentiis, everything is going well," Hamsik told La Repubblica. "It's true that we have to meet shortly to renew the deal.
"I won't say when, but it will happen before Christmas."
The midfielder is due to face City in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday and his team-mates Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi have also been mooted as targets for Roberto Mancini's side.
However, while Mancini would welcome any of the trio in his squad, he believes it would be difficult to persuade Napoli to sell.
Mancini told Corriere dello Sport: "Hamsik, Cavani and Lavezzi? Who wouldn't want them?
"But it will be difficult to take them away from Napoli, especially if they are fighting for the Scudetto."
