ITALY – Napoli captain, Lorenzo Insigne, has said Victor Osimhen reminds him of a former striker at the club, Edinson Cavani.
Insigne netted the second goal in a 2-0 win against Parma on Sunday.
Osimhen started the game from the bench for the Serie A club.
Napoli had to wait until the 60th minute before scoring through Dries Mertens.
“He didn’t just impress me, but the whole group. When he attacks it is devastating, as we saw today.
“He reminds me a bit of Cavani, for how he attacks the depth. He will give us a hand because he brings something different to me and Dries [Mertens], and his speed can be important,” Insigne told Sky Sport Italia.
Cavani scored 104 goals in 138 games for the Partenopei between 2010 and 2013.
