Napoli defender Fabiano Santacroce has hailed the capture of former Palermo striker Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan striker moved to the San Paolo on loan and Napoli have the option to sign him on a permanent basis for £14m.

“Cavani is a fantastic player,” stated the former Brescia man.

“He will be really good for us. Edinson is a forward really difficult to mark and it will be hard for our opponents.

“Still, the most important thing remains our group and if we are united we can go far.”
