Lavezzi came to prominence with many British football fans when he scored two in Napoli’s first leg victory over Chelsea in the Champions League, yet he has lit up Serie A for many years since he joined Napoli in 2007. Increasingly an important part of the Argentina International set-up, Lavezzi can play both on the wing and through the middle as his speed and skill terrorises defences at every turn. It is understood that a lot of money will be required for Napoli to part with their star asset, as French giants PSG and Italian rivals Inter Milan will be among the top suitors for the winger.
