Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis is delighted with the form of Edinson Cavani this season.

The Uruguay striker is in sensational form going into their clash with Chelsea.

"Edi is an absolute bomber," declared President De Laurentiis on Radio Blu.

"I already followed him at Palermo, I was convinced of his value despite some trying to convince me otherwise. They told me he would not be functional for our project, but instead, Mazzarri and I decided to take him."
