Cavani open to Premier League move, says agent

The 28-year-old has refused to rule out leaving the French champions this summer, but his representative says the Spanish and English leagues are "of interest"
Edinson Cavani’s agent admits the Paris Saint-Germain striker is open to a switch to the Premier League.

The 28-year-old, who has scored eight goals in 28 Ligue 1 appearances this season, has been linked with summer moves to Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Cavani recently refused to rule out the possibility of leaving the French champions this summer and the striker’s representative, Claudio Anellucci, says the Uruguayan’s future is yet to be determined.

"For the moment, it seems too early to make any such considerations. Edi is under contract with PSG and discussions of this kind are linked to different situations," Annellucci told Radio Olympia.

"Once the situation has been clarified, different scenarios could open up given that players such as him, at the height of their maturity, are coveted by the best teams in Europe.

"The markets of interest are Spain and England, and that currently excludes an Italian club being able to take part in going for Cavani."

Cavani's future at PSG was placed under further scrutiny after his spat with head coach Laurent Blanc during Sunday's win over Marseille.

The striker exchanged heated words with Blanc as he walked off the pitch after being replaced by Ezequiel Lavezzi in the 59th minute.

"The only concern that I have ever spoken about is that I was recruited to play as a striker with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and it has not always been the case," Cavani told Canal+.

"In France, people judge me as a lone striker, but I do not play in that position."
