The former Marseille striker praises PSG's big-name summer signing from AC Milan, comparing the towering Swede to legendary Netherlands forward Marco van Basten
The Sweden hitman has already netted seven times in five appearances so far and the legendary ex-forward expects the towering attacker to break the personal record of 28 league goals in a season that he set at AC Milan last term.
"It's impossible to predict how many goals he will make. There will always be a few games without goals and injuries or suspensions. It will be difficult for him to keep up his current goal-to-games ratio," Papin was quoted as saying by RMC.

"I don't envy him, because he has different qualities than I had. It's quite rare to see a player with his physical appearance move so smoothly in front of the goal. I really like his combination of power and finesse.
"He reminds me a bit of Marco van Basten. He has the same style of play, but is even more of a physical presence."
Ibrahimovic will be looking to add to his tally on Thursday when PSG host Sochaux.
