Napoli president De Laurentiis: Cavani set the standard for our future strikers

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has spoken of his admiration for Edinson Cavani.

Napoli meet Cavani's PSG in the Champions League this week. The Uruguayan was bought and sold by De Laurentiis with the Azzurri.

"Cavani? There will surely be a warm reunion," he said.

"Cavani was one of my intuitions, since I snatched him from the president of Palermo and made him a real advanced striker.

"We've managed to score 30 goals for all our attackers since Cavani. We are currently looking for his successor and surely we will find someone."
