Napoli midfielder hailed as 'next De Bryune'

Posted: 25 February 2018 Time: 09:15

Napoli head coach  Maurizio Sarri claims the Serie A side have the next Kevin De Bruyne in their ranks as one of the most complete midfielder's in Europe.

The Partenopei have been one of the standout teams in Europe this season, leading the Italian top-flight by one point over second-placed Juventus and losing only one league game all season.

Forward's Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne and inspirational captain Marek Hamsik have often taken the plaudits within the attack-minded outfit but Sarri has now paid homage to one of their rising stars Piotr Zieliński.

"Zielinski? He has a ton of quality and could potentially play anywhere," he told Calcio Mecarto about the 23-year-old midfielder. "He still has to grow but I think he will be the new De Bruyne."

The Poland international has scored seven goals in 34 games across all competitions this season.
