Antonio Conte has confirmed that Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who had attracted strong interest from the likes of CHELSEA and Paris Saint-Germain, will be a key part of his plans at Napoli.

Kvaratskhelia is a player that all the big clubs have been linked with over the past few seasons and is a man that has been heavily tipped to leave Napoli this summer if his £87 million asking price is met.

But amid all the speculation and rumours – Conte has addressed those links: ‘He’s staying,’ Conte said.

‘I’ve been very categorical about this. The president gave him this wonderful news.

‘Kvaratskhelia is a player that there are fewer and fewer with these characteristics, so it’s not a whim to want to keep Kvara.

‘I consider him a really strong player, like Di Lorenzo. Strong in one-on-one situations if he’s on the wing, but also strong when he comes inside, but he’s also a playmaker, he creates situations not only in terms of his goals but also very important assists.

‘I think that if you systematically keep Kvara on the pitch, he loses a bit of his mental freedom, I think. We have to indulge his characteristics, we’ll do this with him and with the players we have in the squad.’
