Hamsik has been strongly linked with a move to the Rossoneri this summer and Allegri recently showered him with praise after his great campaign with Napoli lifted them into the Champions League.

''Allegri's words can only make me happy,'' said Hamsik to Gazzetta dello Sport. ''Who wouldn't be happy to be linked with a club like AC Milan? However, I am very happy at Napoli and I want to reiterate this.''

Hamsik scored 11 goals in 37 league appearances to help Napoli finish third in Serie A this season. The 23-year-old playmaker is under contract with the azzurri outfit until June 2015.
