Paris:

Uruguay teammates Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani both expressed interest in playing for Paris Saint-Germain during a report broadcast on French television channel Canal+ on Sunday evening.

Both players were speaking in a segment about their Uruguay teammate Diego Lugano, who is currently playing for PSG.

"It would be very tempting to come to Paris," said Napoli striker Cavani.

"I'd love for us to play together."

Liverpool forward Suarez said he would "love to play at the same club as (Lugano)" and admitted he could be tempted by a move to Parc des Princes in the future.

"Yes, I could come to Paris, but like any other big club," he said.

"There are lots of big clubs with that kind of status, who want to build a great team, and Paris are one of those clubs that are recruiting to make themselves stronger."

PSG have embarked on an ambitious recruitment drive since being taken over by Qatar Sports Investments last summer, notably signing Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore from Palermo for a French record fee of 43 million euros ($56m).

Lugano has lost his place in the starting line-up since the arrival of Brazilian centre-back Alex from Chelsea in January and he was on the bench as PSG won 2-1 at Dijon on Sunday to keep hold of top spot in Ligue 1.
