Napoli and Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain is set to remain at the Italian club for the next five years, according to Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Higuain has attracted interest from several big European clubs this off-season, with the in-form striker netting 36 goals in 35 Serie A matches in the 2015-16 season.

Liverpool has been named as one of the most interested clubs in acquiring the 28-year-old's services.

But De Laurentiis is adamant his star striker is staying put.

"If his words are sincere then Higuain will play in Naples for at least another five years," he told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"I would like him to stay in Naples forever.

"He is one of a kind, he plays for the pleasure of scoring goals which is what makes every genuine and self-respecting attacker."

Higuain has made 104 appearances for Napoli, netting 71 goals since he joined from Real Madrid in 2013.
