Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has once again refused to rule out the possibility that a change in the current transfer climate could take him to the Premier League in a blockbuster January transfer, despite insisting he's happy in the French capital.

Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and even Chelsea have all been linked with the prolific Uruguayan hitman throughout 2014, but PSG have thus far managed to retain a services of a man who cost them more than £50 million less than 18 months ago.

Cavani's been largely forced to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic during his time with PSG despite scoring consistently, which means that despite looking relatively settled in the early part of this season speculation surrounding his future is never too far from the back pages.

PSG exit still possible

After scoring to help PSG come behind and earn a 2-1 win at Lorient yesterday Cavani was in reflective mood, but despite allaying fears that he's still frustrated with life at the Parc des Princes the feared forward couldn't help but continue to flirt with potential transfer suitors.

In an interview with Telefoot relayed by The Express he teased: "I am good at Paris. And I like it. But In football we never know what is going to happen the next season, or the next day. There are lots of things that could happen in a club."

The 27-year-old also went on to declare that he feels a very serious on-field attitude can sometimes be misconstrued as sulky, particularly from those hungry to fan the flames of mega transfer talk.

He explained: "I have never been a very smiley player on the pitch so you can think that I am not happy maybe. 'Cavani is not happy because he is playing at a different position.'

"Each person has their own view, but to talk about me being sad or other problems, it has never been the case."

Liverpool look most likely to try and replace Balotelli

It's now up to any Premier League club still seriously interested in Cavani to test that theory with a formal offer, although don't expect a January bid from either Chelsea or United.

Liverpool and Arsenal look far more likely to be monitoring Cavani's latest comments more closely, with the Reds in particular still ruing Mario Balotelli's poor start to life on Merseyside.

The Reds would have to spend big to sign Cavani, but it's clear that if the price is right a perennial favourite of the transfer gossip columns could probably be persuaded to jump ship.
