Diana, who is currently on a one-year loan deal from Parma, believes the 25-year-old Japanese striker can go on to fulfil his potential and become Japan's best player if he continues to show the sort of attitude that has seen him make tremendous progress at the club.
"I know Nakata well from my days at Parma, and I have played against (Reggina's Shunsuke) Nakamura a couple of times," said Diana in reference to the Japanese players currently in Serie A.
"But I believe Yanagisawa can be better than them.
"I have been surprised by the progress he has made since coming here. If he keeps this up, I have no doubt he can become a special player."
