Napoli striker Ezequiel Lavezzi has revealed he wants to play for hometown club Rosario Central before hanging up his boots.
The 24-year-old insists he is enjoying life in Serie A but holds the Argentinean side in great affection and even has their badge tattooed across his chest.
He said: "I am very comfortable at Napoli but one day I would like the chance to play at Rosario Central.
"I feel supported and respected at Napoli. I am having success in Italian football and I feel involved with the team.
"We are progressing and maturing every day and that gives me a sense of satisfaction, but I am sure I will when I return to Argentina, it is my dream."
World Cup hopes
Lavezzi has become a cult hero since joining the Partenopi in 2007 and is hopeful of adding to his six Argentina caps if he continues to impress.
He added: "I had a very good 2009, it was positive in many respects, and my wish for this year is to keep improving in order to get myself into contention for the World Cup. I am looking forward to that very much."
