Cannavaro: Replacing Cavani difficult

11 July 2013 10:03

Fabio Cannavaro believes that Napoli will have difficulty replacing Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguay international looks set to depart the Serie A club, with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain leading the race for his signature.

And Cannavaro, who had a three-year spell at the Naples side from 1992-95, believes that the club's supporters would be frustrated to see the 26-year-old leave.

"When a player like Cavani leaves, after they have already lost (Ezequiel) Lavezzi last year, it is clear there is great disappointment because there are signals that suggest you do not think of the future," Cannavaro said during a function at the City of Science, Naples.

"The fans rightly want to win the league, want to win the cup and always hope to achieve the best."

On who could fill the void left by Cavani should he depart, Cannavaro added: "Replacing Cavani? It's not easy. (Edin) Dzeko I think would be the right choice, but it is not easy."

Cavani featured on 34 occasions for Napoli last season, contributing 29 goals as they secured a second-placed finish in Serie A.
