Lavezzi has English admirers

The agent of Ezequiel Lavezzi has claimed that the Napoli player is being watched by a number of Italian and English clubs.

Alejandro Mazzone revealed as much in an interview with Radio CRC when questioned about the future of the Argentine.

"I can't confirm or deny an offer from Tottenham," the representative stated. "English sides are following him though.

"I also know that two or three Italian outfits are also interested in Lavezzi, but there is nothing concrete.

"A few sides are collecting information on him, about his salary, but nobody has spoken to me or the club."

Milan have been paired with the forward, 26, but Mazzone insisted he isn't aware of the Rossoneri's alleged interest. "I don't know," he stated.

Although the agent refused to rule out the possibility of a summer move, he did suggest that the player would be content to remain.

"He's happy in Napoli and he feels the affection of the fans. He's also satisfied that he'll be able to play in the Champions League.

"Meanwhile, he's now also bought a boat here…"
