Chelsea target Edinson Cavani has denied that he wants to leave Napoli and secure a move to a more high profile club.

The 25-year-old has been in quite sensational form since moving to the Stadio San Paolo from Palermo, and has scored 51 goals in 63 appearances for Napoli.

This potency in front of goal has seen Cavani frequently linked with a move away from Naples, and Stamford Bridge has often been touted as a potential destination for the Uruguayan striker.

Cavani further demonstrated his talents to Chelsea during last week's Champions League encounter, in which he scored during a famous 3-1 triumph for Napoli.

The Uruguay international will be provided with another opportunity to showcase his ability when Napoli travel to London for the second leg of the tie but, he says, a move to Chelsea is not on his mind.

"Whoever thinks I want to go to a bigger club is totally wrong," Cavani told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

"Napoli is a great club and we already demonstrated that the other day against Chelsea.

"They have given me all the confidence in the world and I can't wait to attack with Lavezzi as a couple again because he is making me a better striker all the time"

Along with Cavani, Chelsea have also been linked with Porto forward Hulk as Andre Villas-Boas makes plans for the summer transfer window.
