Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani insists he has always been happy in the French capital and never considered moving to the Premier League.

The Uruguayan's first season in France was dominated by suggestions he may choose to leave the club with Manchester United and Chelsea relentlessly linked with a move before they added Radamel Falcao and Diego Costa to their respective squads.

The £55m signing's inability to displace Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the spearhead of PSG's attack fuelled speculation that another move could be on the cards, speculation that remained rife throughout the summer.

France Football added in October that Liverpool were another party involved in a potential move after PSG offered Cavani to the Merseyside club in their efforts to lure Luis Suarez, while the striker's agent also recently confirmed Arsenal's interest.

But in an interview with Le Parisen, the former Napoli star has insisted he has always felt at home at the Parc de Princes despite occasional moments of doubt over his future, dismissing suggestions he listened to offers from England.

"Even when I have doubts in my head, I always arrived at the conclusion that I am happy at PSG," Cavani said.

"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."

In the absence of Ibrahimovic, who has been unavailable for the last six weeks with a heel injury, Cavani has been given the role of leading Laurent Blanc's attack.

However, the Uruguay international has largely struggled to replicate the Swede's form, scoring just twice in six games, although he did claim three points for his side with a late winner against APOEL in the Champions League.
