Napoli striker Edinson Cavani says he's happy with life in Serie A and is already at a 'great club' amid speculation he could be set to move to the Premier League.

Reports in Italy on Wednesday linked the Uruguayan with a €50 million move to Manchester City in the summer, but he insisted that he does not have to leave Naples to be at a top European side.

"Anyone would like to be a part of a great club, but I already consider Napoli to be that," he told Uruguayan TV show Hablemos de Futbol. "There is a perfect squad of players there. I'm serene in Naples and all I am thinking about is working hard for the Azzurri shirt."

Cavani, 25, has bagged 23 goals in 33 games this term and has been linked with a host of clubs including City, Real Madrid and Chelsea. The striker, though, gave no indication that he was ready to leave yet.

"To now be Napoli's most prolific player of all time in European competition makes me proud," he continued. "I'm satisfied with what I am doing. This is one of the best moments in my career and I hope to continue on this path."
