Edinson Cavani's agent claims Liverpool and Arsenal chasing Uruguayan

Claudi Anelluci claims Premier League clubs are interested

The agent of Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani claims that Liverpool have made an approach to buy him.

The 27-year-old had a very good debut season in Paris scoring 25 goals as PSG won Ligue 1. But Cavani is reported to be unhappy because Zlatan Ibrahimovic is quite clearly the main man for the oil-rich French club.

With Brendan Rodgers still chasing a replacement for Luis Suarez after his £75m move to Barcelona, Cavani's agent Claudi Anelluci has claimed Liverpool, and Premier League rivals Arsenal, have both made an approach.

“There has been much interest in the player during the last six months,” Anelluci told El Telegrafo.

“I can confirm that Cavani heard proposals from Liverpool and Arsenal. (Cavani) already said he would love to play in England, but has not yet made a final decision.

“He is not interested in money and fame; just want to be happy playing football.”

Rodgers has also made an audacious enquiry for Monaco star Radamel Falcao, but Liverpool were told he is set on a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Marco Reus is another potential arrival at Anfield, after it emerged the Borussia Dortmund star has a £20m release clause in his contract.

Since moving to Napoli in 2010 Cavani has become one of the best strikers in the world, scoring 104 goals in 138 matches in three years for the Italian club.

His record earned him a £50m to France last summer, and while his form on the pitch was good, there were continual rumours he was unhappy playing out wide as Ibrahimovic played through the middle.

During the World Cup, Cavani said: “In football you never know. Anything can happen.

“One day you're in one team and they next day you can be in another.”

Manchester United have also been linked with the striker, as have Chelsea.
