The Argentina ace has been linked with a switch away from the San Paolo but his Spanish team-mate does not believe the striker wants to leave and is praying he remains at the club
Jose Callejon does not believe Gonzalo Higuain is seeking a move away from Napoli and is hopeful his in-demand team-mate will stay put.
Higuain topped Serie A’s goalscoring charts last term and the Argentina international has since been linked with a move away from Naples, with Italian champions Juventus emerging as a shock destination.
Napoli have quashed reports linking the 28-year-old, who has two years remaining on his contract, to Juve and Callejon is determined to see Higuain remain in Naples ahead of the new season.
“I want him to stay here at Napoli,” Callejon said.

“I have played with him for the last three seasons, two at Napoli and one at Real Madrid, and I now have a strong relationship with him.
“I have not heard anything from Higuain that he wants to leave. A lot of the news at this time of year is just mere speculation. It would be a shame if he is not with us next season.”
Higuain scored 36 goals in Serie A last season – an all-time record in Italian top flight history – as Napoli finished second behind Juventus.
