Edinson Cavani will not leave Napoli for less than £53m, according to club president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has insisted that striker Edinson Cavani will not leave the club for less than the player's minimum buyout clause.

The Uruguayan has been in scintillating form this season, having netted 25 goals in 24 appearances across all competitions, and has been linked with a move to a number of Europe's elite clubs.

Arsenal and Manchester City are both supposedly interested in the player, but De Laurentiis is adamant that the 25-year-old will not be leaving for any less than his £53m buyout clause.

"I have already said before that Cavani is not for sale," said De Laurentiis.

"So we will have to wait and see whether someone is willing to pay his buyout clause, and if the player wants to join that club."

Cavani signed a five-year contract extension with the Serie A outfit last summer.
