Sacked Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini says Edin Dzeko would be a great signing for Napoli.

Napoli see Dzeko as a readymade replacement for Edinson Cavani.

"Dzeko is different to Cavani, but I think he's a great striker and can do very well at Napoli," Mancini told Sky Sport Italia.

"He has quality, is a good guy and could really score many goals in Italy. If I had remained at Manchester City, then Cavani would probably have joined Manchester City."
