The Uruguay forward believes that winning Serie A is a realistic goal for his side, and insists he joined the club to leave his mark on its history rather than achieve individually
The Partenopei are currently second in the Serie A table - two points behind leaders Juventus - and Cavani believes that the Scudetto is a realistic target this season.
"Winning the championship is not a dream so far," Cavani told reporters. "Juve are easily reachable. Let's just say that the team and I are on the case.
"I did not come to Naples to do more than [Diego] Maradona. I came here to get into people's hearts and leave a mark in the history of the club."
Cavani was full of gratitude for his current situation, but admitted that his competitive nature was a huge driving force behind success and that Napoli must be prepared to try anything to be victorious.
"For me it is an exceptional time and I have to thank, first and foremost, my family," he continued. "Whenever I'm on the field I want to win at all costs, I struggle to digest the defeats.
"In life you can be as gentle as doves, but on the field we players have to be eagles."
