Edinson Cavani says he is just thinking about Napoli and ignoring speculation linking him with a move to La Liga and the Premier League.

The Uruguay international’s future at the Naples outfit has been in doubt for the past few months despite him penning a new contract at the club last
August, including reported £54m release clause.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been linked with a summer swoop for the 26-year-old after he scored 29 goals in 34 top-flight appearances this season.

However, Cavani has stressed that he is happy at the Serie A runners-up.

“Real Madrid, Chelsea and [Manchester] City are interested in me? I just think about Napoli,” Cavani told Ovacion Digital.

“If an important offer were to come in, I will talk with president [Aurelio] De Laurentiis.

“I’m fine in Italy, I have grown as a man there and as a player with the Serie A experience.”

On Sunday, Cavani’s father revealed that he expects the forward to move to Spain if he decides to leave Napoli in the summer.

“He feels very comfortable in Italy, and I don’t say that to make the fans or the club happy,” Luis Cavani told Ovacion.

“I say it because that is what he feels, because it is the truth.”

He added: “If he is [leaving], it seems that his future will be in Spain.”
