Branislav Ivanovic has no interest in a move to Serie A side Napoli because his heart is with Chelsea, according to the defender's agent Vlado Borozan.

Ivanovic, who joined the Blues from Lokomotiv Moscow in January 2008, scored Chelsea's extra-time winner as they eliminated Napoli from the Champions League last week.

And he is eager to continue his work under the guidance of interim boss Roberto di Matteo and whoever succeeds the Italian in the Stamford Bridge hotseat.

"I'm sorry that we cannot admire Ivanovic on Italian fields because he was close to coming to Italy twice in the past," Borozan told Radio Crc. "My client is an unmovable first-choice player at Chelsea and currently in his head there is only the English club.

"Ivanovic to Napoli? Napoli has become an important side, but I think the deal is not feasible. Ivanovic is having a great time at Chelsea and I think his future will be with the Blues. "
