Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani, who has been regularly linked with a move to Anfield in the past few years, has ruled out leaving Paris Saint Germain any time soon after being again linked with a move to the Premiership.
It has been reported recently that Cavani was set to be part of a player exchange between Liverpool and the French giants involving his international colleague Luis Suarez in the Summer, but the deal collapsed because Suarez did not want to go to France.
And as well as Liverpool, there are rumours that Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United hare all monitoring his situation with a January move in mind for the former Napoli forward. But despite playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Parc de Princes, Cavani has rejected talk of a move and says he is happy where he is.
“Even when I have doubts in my head, I always arrived at the conclusion that I am happy at PSG,” he told Le Parisen.
“The supporters and all the people at the club make me feel at home. In football, money is not the only motivation.
“Of course every player tries to find a more comfortable economic situation but there is also the place, the club which you play, which is important.
“I don’t think I spoke about that [leaving PSG], and nor did the president [Nasser] al-Khelaifi.
“All of that was the rumours which exist in football, like when I joined Napoli or PSG. Each time, a lot of things are said.”
Liverpool are in need of more firepower after Daniel Sturridge suffered yet another injury recently coupled with the poor form of Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Fabio Borini.
