Cavani unaware of Arsenal interest

by Michelle Fortune , 05 February 2013

Edinson Cavani has only just become aware of Arsenal's interest in him but he is adamant he is only focused on the present with Napoli.

Manchester City were first linked with the striker and were reported to be considering tabling a big offer for the 25-year-old, but this never transpired as it became clear he was happy at the Serie A club.

Arsene Wenger hinted at his interest in the striker in January but, with Napoli unwilling to sell the player for €55million, the Gunners failed to table a bid before the close of the transfer window.

Cavani insists he was not aware of Arsenal's interest in him, but admits he would be exited at the prospect of joining Barcelona or Real Madrid.

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

"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."
