Gonzalo Higuain has tipped Juventus team-mate Paulo Dybala to become one of the best players in the world.

The Argentine has a lot of hype to live up to after his impressive performances led to a big move to Juventus. Dybala, 23, scored 19 Serie A goals in his first season at the Turin side and has seven in 18 in the competition this term.

Higuain, who joined Juve ahead of the current campaign from Napoli for a fee of €90 million, is enoying featuring beside his compatriot and hailed him as a special player.

"He can read the game very well," Higuain told La Stampa. "In fact, he sees football just like the greats do, even though he is very young.

"I hate comparisons, so I will say that Dybala must become Dybala. He has the potential to be among the best in the world. But you have to leave him alone."

Higuain has scored 22 goals in 33 games in all competitions already for the Bianconeri and he is amazed by the mentality that surrounds the club.

"Winning is not important, it is the only thing that matters: it is not a little phrase, but the clearest example of the essence of this team," he added. 

"Playing at the Juventus Stadium is spectacular. Before entering the field of view photos of Platini, Baggio, Zidane, Del Piero and you say: 'in the same shirt, can I not give my best?'

"At 29 I have found mental tranquility in my life, both in work and outside of it. I am playing in a team that will fight for the Champions League and I have found a beautiful city, where I love to wander."

Juve visit Porto in the first-leg of their Champions League second round on Wednesday. They currently sit seven points clear at the top of the table.
