Liverpool forward Luis Suarez has urged his international teammate Edinson Cavani to move to the Premier League, with Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal thought to be interested, according to the Daily Mail.

The in-demand Napoli forward is the top scorer in Serie 'A' this term with 20 league goals.

His impressive form has helped the Italian club into second place in the league, and Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal are all thought to be exploring the possibility of bringing him to the Premier League.

The 25-year-old forward has a £60m buyout clause in his Napoli contract, and while Arsenal may find such a fee prohibitive, big-spending Chelsea and Manchester City could still make a summer move.

And Suarez, who plays alongside Cavani with Uruguay, has been trying to convince his international teammate to join a Premier League club.

Cavani said while on international duty with Uruguay: "When I speak with Luis he speaks with admiration about Liverpool and the Premier League.

"He even encourages me to play in England."

But Suarez's own future in the Premier League is a constant source of speculation, with Bayern Munich and Juventus thought to be keen to sign the Liverpool striker at the end of the season.

And Cavani warned Liverpool earlier this week that they risk losing Suarez if they don't secure Champions League football soon.
