It is far too soon to judge the ability of Napoli sensation Lorenzo Insigne, his agent has insisted.
The player has caught the eye already this season after returning to his parent club following loans spells at Foggia and then Pescara.
The 21-year-old made his Italian international debut last week and, on Sunday, scored his first Serie A strike in the 3-1 win over Parma.
“The boy scored an important goal,” Fabio Andreotti noted. “He is living his dream and he’s making himself known, but it is still too early to be making an evaluation of his ability.
“At the start of the season he was finding it a little bit difficult to be incisive because he was feeling the effects of the pre-season workload, but we now hope he can continue playing at these levels.”
Insigne has won comparisons with Juventus’ Sebastian Giovinco, while he’s quickly stepped into the boots of Ezequiel Lavezzi who left for Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.
