Napoli left-back: I'm flattered by Arsenal and Chelsea interest


Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam says he would be flattered to feature in a big club next season.

The 24-year-old was one of the surprise performers for the Partenopei last season and has attracted interest from a number of top European clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea.

He is however expected to stay at Napoli and will join the rest of the squad for pre-season later on this month.

"Arsenal, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea are interested? It's nice to be linked with important clubs," Ghoulam told

"But I'm relaxed, I'm on holiday and I just want to enjoy the next few days with my family.

"I would be delighted to play in a big club [next season] but Napoli is also a big club.

"[Ex Napoli coach Rafa Benitez] is a great coach, he helped my progress, he cares for details so that each and every player improves his individual game."
