Chelsea target Edinson Cavani believes his style of play would be best suited to a stab at Spanish football, although the Napoli striker is committed to his current employers.

The 24-year-old has scored 12 times in 16 appearances for Napoli this season, following on from an impressive haul of 32 goals during the previous campaign.

Chelsea have been consistently linked with Cavani in recent months, and initial reports suggest Andre Villas-Boas had identified the Uruguay international as an eventual successor to Didier Drogba.

Napoli, though, have no intention of letting their prized asset leave on the cheap, and Chelsea would reportedly have to pay around £50 million to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

Cavani, meanwhile, has revealed that the opportunity to play in England would certainly be an attractive proposition, although La Liga would be his preferred choice.

"I like English football a lot," Cavani said. "There are teams there that are very dynamic and strong.

"I also like Spanish football as there is more space which is ideal for my game. But my future is at Napoli, I have no doubt. The season is long and hard and I am just focused on Saturday's game with Lazio."
