Thiago Motta's agent said the Inter midfielder is “too expensive” for Napoli after reports of a summer switch.
“He is happy at Inter, but is one of those players who all the top clubs would want in their squad,” agent Dario Canovi told Radio CRC.
“Obviously we cannot rule out that Napoli would be interested in him.
“However, his wages are worth €3m per season, which is above the average at the Stadio San Paolo, so because of that it seems a fairly difficult proposition.”
Napoli are looking to reinforce their squad after qualifying for the Champions League.
