PSG star Ezequiel Lavezzi admits having a say in convincing Gonzalo Higuain about moving to Napoli.

The former Real Madrid striker chose Napoli ahead of Arsenal last month.

And ex-Napoli star Lavezzi revealed: "I often spoke with him before he moved to Naples. Of the city, I only said nice things. Unlike what you hear, I was very fond of Naples. I have not found many differences with Argentina.

"I'm sure that Gonzalo will do his best to do well in Azzurri. I hope he can be loved more than me by Napoli fans."
