The Uruguayan hit-man has been a success at the Parc des Princes since his €60m move from Napoli last summer, bagging 21 goals in all competitions, including four in six Champions League starts.
But the 27-year-old has been largely used on the right wing in Laurent Blanc’s preferred 4-3-3 formation, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic remaining as the central striker.
Cavani claims he is ‘fine’ at the club but has admitted he will evaluate his options this summer.
“Will I remain at Paris next term? We will see at the end of the season,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“I am fine in Paris, but obviously there are things we have to talk about with the club, things we need to do in a different way.”
“Of course it is not easy. Playing besides players like Zlatan, Thiago Silva, Thiago Motta or Lavezzi is great for any player.
“But for a forward used to scoring and which has to do defensive tasks now, it is not easy.
“I don’t want to talk about sacrifices because making efforts has always been part of my game. But now I am more defensive and it is more difficult because when you came, it was with other ideas and other views about your position in the team and the club.
“Playing in 4-4-2 was my vision of the team when I joined Paris. It is one of the arguments that motivated me to sign in that club. Let’s terminate Le Championnat and we will see what will happen.”
Manchester United and Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the Uruguay international.
