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."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
