Napoli have handed trials to the kid brother of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

Enock Barwuah, 17, has been on the books of Carpenedolo, training with their first team, and will spend the next few days in Naples while the Partenopei evaluate his talents.

"My dream is to wear the Napoli jersey," expressed the youngster. "I hope to do well and convince the club of my worth. Also Mario has spoken many good things about Naples, saying it would be just the city for me.

"Ezequiel Lavezzi is my idol, I am inspired to play like him," added the left midfielder.

"Mario calls me every day and knows of my trial, he follows me and encourages me. I cannot be compared to him, though, we play differently even if we both share the offensive characteristics."
