Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has confirmed he is not considering his future at the Serie A club.

The Uruguayan has scored 16 goals domestically this season in 24 appearances, and forms part of devastating attacking trio at Napoli which includes Ezequiel Lavezzi and Marek Hamsik.

Napoli lead Chelsea 3-1 going into the pair's Champions League last 16 second leg, a competition Cavani wants to win with the Azzurri.

"My future? I have confidence that the president of Napoli loves me," he told Il Mattino.

"I find it perfect here. It's perfect to live here and at the moment I am great personally. I do not want to pay attention to the market rumours.

"My dream is to win the Champions League (with Napoli)."

Cavani has netted against both Chelsea and Manchester City in the Champions League this season, with both clubs rumoured to be interested in the 25-year-old.

Goals in both group games eventually proved to be crucial in City's exit at the first stage of the Champions League proper, while his unorthodox effort against Chelsea helped secure a first-leg advantage ahead of the Stamford Bridge return.

The Blues have reportedly sent scouts to watch Cavani, while City boss Roberto Mancini is understood to be a long-term admirer.

International boss Oscar Washington, has urged Cavani to spread his wings this summer.

"I think he will surely leave Napoli," said Tabarez. "I don't know when, but he must go to England or Spain."
