Alejandro Mazzoni, the agent of Argentinian striker Ezequiel Lavezzi, says his client would be willing to stay at Napoli even if they don't qualify for Europe.

Lavezzi was at war with the club in the summer as they allegedly reneged on an agreement to raise his salary.

The 24-year-old left early for his holidays, irking Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis who put Lavezzi in his place during pre-season training, telling him that he wouldn't be held hostage by a mercenary.

'El Pocho' attracted interest from Juventus, but an offer never materialised.

Asked if his client would commit to Napoli even if they miss out on Europe next season, Mazzoni replied: “For Lavezzi there wouldn't be any problem in staying here. He is part of the Napoli project. Not playing in the Europa League wouldn't be a dilemma.”

Mazzoni went on to imply that Lavezzi has put all his issues with the club behind him.

“Lavezzi is fine. He prepared himself well at the club's training camp in Austria and I believe that he will have a great season,” Mazzoni told Radio Kiss Kiss.

Asked about his position on the pitch, Mazzoni said: “When he plays further forward Lavezzi is decisive. To me, he seems a lot more dangerous closer to the goal.

“His relationship with Donadoni is very good and among other things it seems to me that Donadoni has also asked him to play further forward.”

Mazzoni also revealed he was excited that his client has the chance to strike up a partnership with Fabio Quagliarella.

“I don't know Fabio very well, but he seems to be a great player, of great quality and I believe that great players can play together,” Mazzoni concluded.

Lavezzi has appeared in every one of Napoli's games in Serie A so far this season. However, he is yet to get off the mark.

That could change on Wednesday night when the Partenopei travel to Milan where they will face Inter.[football-italia.net]
