Edinson Cavani says that he is fully focused on Napoli amid speculation that Manchester City and Chelsea are keen on signing the forward.

Napoli star Edinson Cavani has insisted that he is not allowing himself to be affected by the constant speculation surrounding his future.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to a number of high-profile outfits, including Premier League clubs Manchester City and Chelsea, but the forward has claimed that he is only concerned with Napoli.

"I'm calmly living through all of this," talkSPORT quotes Cavani as saying. "There is a lot of talk in football and I'm being linked with a lot of teams.

"But I'm only thinking of Napoli, a club who offered me their faith in the summer of 2010 by paying Palermo a lot for me. I'm just focused on giving 100% for Napoli, I'm not thinking about the rest."

Reports have claimed that Cavani has a £60m release clause in his contract at the Serie A club.
