Edinson Cavani is hoping he can complete a move to Inter Milan, allowing him to challenge for honours.

His current employers, Palermo, have admitted that they are prepared to cash in on the Uruguay international striker this summer.

That has alerted numerous clubs to his availability, with Serie A champions Inter believed to be leading the chase.

That is fine with Cavani, as he would relish the opportunity to test himself at Giuseppe Meazza.

"As a player I have two dreams: to do well at the World Cup and to wear the shirt of Inter Milan," the 23-year-old told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It would be nice to stay in Italy fighting for the Scudetto (league title) and the Champions League with the Nerazzurri.

"I think (Palermo president Maurizio) Zamperini is like a father to me. But our president is also a skilled accountant.

"From my sale, and perhaps that of Simon Kjaer, he will be collecting a lot of money and that would be a nice gift for him."


Should Cavani secure a switch to Inter he will link up with Rafa Benitez, and the South American believes the Spaniard is the ideal candidate to carry on the good work of Jose Mourinho in Milan.

He added: "Rafa Benitez? He is a coach who knows how to win and is accustomed to working at prestigious clubs. I think he is a choice in line with the ambition of Inter."

Cavani is also confident that he could be a success at Inter, believing he has matured into a versatile frontman.

"Today I am a striker who can adapt to different roles," he said.

"Put it this way, I would like to become the Wayne Rooney of Inter Milan. I want to be a striker who can play many roles."
