Pescara boss Zdenek Zeman insists Lorenzo Insigne is good enough to already be a part of the Napoli squad.
The 20-year-old striker, called up to Italy's Under-21 party, is currently on loan at Pescara from the Stadio San Paolo outfit.
"I don't see why he wouldn't be ready for Napoli," Zeman, who also bossed the forward at Foggia last season, told the Corriere dello Sport.
"I see worse players than him in the Azzurri set-up at the moment," added the controversial Czech Coach.
"He's really satisfying me right now because he is young and very good. He has the stuff needed to continue improving."
Insigne scored 19 goals in 34 games for Foggia last term. He has netted twice in Serie B for Pescara so far this season.
Insigne has actually already made his Serie A debut for Napoli – he came on as a substitute in a January 2010 game against Livorno.
