The agent of Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani has revealed that Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in signing Manchester United's summer target.

The Uruguayan international joined the Ligue 1 champions last summer from Napoli. However, the 27 year-old saw himself being played out of position with Laurent Blanc using Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the central striker. The situation led to Cavani being unhappy at the French capital.

The striker's unhappiness saw the former Napoli star being linked with a move to the Premier League, with Manchester United and their league rivals Chelsea believed to be interested in signing the striker.

However, the player's representative Claudi Anelluci says Liverpool and Arsenal have shown interest in Cavani during the last six months.

"There has been much interest in the player during the last six months," Anelluci told El Telegrafo.

"I can confirm that Cavani heard proposals from Liverpool and Arsenal. (Cavani) already said he would love to play in England, but has not yet made a final decision. He is not interested in money and fame; just want to be happy playing football."

Liverpool saw Cavani's compatriot Luis Suarez leave Anfield and complete his switch to Barcelona last month. Brendan Rodgers is yet to find a replacement for the former Ajax man and a move for PSG striker could see him replace Suarez at the Merseyside club.

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger has signed Alexis Sanchez from Barcelona and the Chilean international will partner Olivier Giorud to lead the Gunners' strike force for the next season. It is unlikely that Arsenal could make an approach for Cavani after having sealed a deal for Sanchez.

However, Liverpool could step up their interest in beating United for the signing of Cavani in the ongoing transfer window to bolster the Reds' attacking division for the upcoming campaign.

Despite the claims made by Cavani's agent, the striker earlier admitted that he is happy with his current employers and is not considering a summer exit from Paris.

"I'm certain that I'll stay - why wouldn't I? I feel very good in Paris, I have a contract to respect at PSG. I'd prefer to be here. I feel good here," Cavani told L'Equipe.

"Like I've already said, that doesn't depend solely on the position of a player but also things that can happen at the club."
