Napoli midfielder rejects Premier League move

Gokhan Inler

Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler has rejected a move to England this summer according to his agent, as reported by Sky Sports.

The former Udinese man impressed for Napoli last season and has reiterated his desire to stay with the club by rejecting a big money move to a ‘prestigious’ Premier League club.

Arsenal and Liverpool have both been linked with the holding midfielder in recent years and could be behind the mystery bid that was rejected by the player.

New Napoli boss Rafa Benitez has had to sell his best player in Edinson Cavani this week but appears to have the full backing of Inler, whose agent confirmed as much yesterday.

“He’s very happy and he told me that he’s feeling good at the starting of the training camp,” the agent said.

“There was an offer from a very prestigious English club but we have not taken it into consideration.

“Benitez has told Gokhan his plans and he feels that he will be important for both Napoli and the coach.”
