Emanuele Calaio has no intention of leaving Napoli for a move to China, his agent brother has confirmed.
The striker has been linked with Dalian Shide after struggling to get games for the Azzurri following his January move.
“It is true, there has been an enquiry from China,” Umberto Calaio commented. “However, it would be hard for him to take that into consideration.
“Emanuele has other intentions right now.”
Calaio, in his second spell with Napoli, made just six appearances for the Stadio San Paolo outfit following his move from Siena.
The 31-year-old forward is being looked at by Torino, hometown club Palermo and Siena.
