Cavani: Scudetto is within Napoli's reach

The Uruguay forward believes that winning Serie A is a realistic goal for his side this campaign, and insists he joined the club to leave his mark on its history
Napoli striker Edinson Cavani has spoken optimistically of his side's title chances, stating that he and his team-mates are "on the case".

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. Juve are easily reachable. Let's just say that the team and I are on the case," Cavani told reporters.

"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 his success and that Napoli must be prepared to try anything to be victorious.

He added: "For me it is an exceptional time and I have to thank, first and foremost, my family.

"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."
