Edinson Cavani: Was linked with Arsenal

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani is unaware of any interest from Arsenal, but says a move to Barcelona or Real Madrid 'stimulates the imagination'.

Cavani has regularly been linked with a move away from Napoli, with Manchester City reportedly chasing the Uruguayan as a replacement for Mario Balotelli.

The Serie A club have previously insisted that Cavani will only be sold if the 63million euros (£54million) release clause in his contract is met, with the latest speculation claiming Real are lining up a summer bid.

The Gunners have also been rumoured to be admirers of Cavani and, while the forward is happy at Napoli, he is keeping an open mind regarding his long-term future.

"I know nothing about Arsenal's interest," Cavani told Radio Onda Cero. "I have only heard about it now.

"My future? I have a contract for four years but in football you never know what to expect. Barcelona and Real Madrid are teams which stimulate the imagination. But I only think about the present.

"I'm living the highest point of my career with Napoli and I want to concentrate on fighting for the scudetto. Along with my team-mates, we want to give a dream for our people."

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
