Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani insisted that a move to the Premier League has never crossed his mind.

The Uruguayan hitman was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal in the summer, with the latter reportedly still monitoring the 27-year-old’s progress. However, the in-form hit-man has reiterated his desire to stay in the French capital, and has no desire to seek a move across the channel.

"I feel fine at PSG," Cavani told Le Parisien. "The fans and everyone at the club makes me feel at home. In football, money is not the only motivation.

"Did I think to join England last summer? I didn’t think me or the chairman ever said any word that could make people think that. That is all football rumors. My 5 years contract at PSG? I don’t know what will happen, no one knows. I am under contract and the most important is the fact I am here now and we try to win titles with PSG."

Cavani has excelled in the absence of the mercurial Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and while both appear eager to be the Parisiens’ main focal point of the attack, Cavani is adamant the pair get along just fine.

"My relationship with Zlatan? I can’t understand why there are so many questions about that," Cavani added. "We have normal team-mate relationship. To me any team-mate is the same.

"There is no problem with Ibra. We are complementary. I can’t see why we could not play together in the team."
