Chelsea target Edinson Cavani has pledged his immediate future to Napoli.

The 24-year-old striker has netted 37 times in in 55 games for Napoli and, hence, has frequently been linked with a big-money move away from Naples.

It was initially reported by the Evening Standard that Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas was considering bringing the Uruguayan to Stamford Bridge as a long-term replacement for Didier Drogba.

However, Chelsea will now have to focus their admiration elsewhere after Cavani revealed his intention to stay at the Stadio San Paolo.

"My future is in Naples - without any doubt," he said, according to talkSPORT. "I do not think about another club, although I am flattered by the rumours.

"I have spoken with the president [at Napoli] and there is no desire from me or the club to place myself on the market. I am happy here and want to do big things in Naples."

Along with Chelsea, Cavani has also been linked with Manchester United and Manchester City.
