Napoli have turned down a 55 million-euro offer for striker Edison Cavani with club owner Aurelio De Laurentiis indicating that the Uruguayan’s “warrior” spirit will be key to a Serie A title push.

“Cavani is a warrior who embodies all that’s best of the Napoli spirit and our supporters. It is because of this I turned down an offer of 55 million”, De Laurentiis told Radio Marte, without identifying the chasing club.

“Cavani has become the symbol of our resurgence. If I have kept him here it is not because of money, but a love for the club,” added the team chief of the 25-year-old who has scored 13 league goals this season.

Cavani arrived at Napoli having spent three seasons with Palermo.

Napoli are fifth in Serie A, 10 points behind leaders Juventus.
