Mauro Icardi believes he can prosper in partnership with Edinson Cavani at Paris Saint-Germain, should Thomas Tuchel opt to pick the two strikers in the same XI.

Having moved to the French capital from Inter on a season-long loan deal, Icardi has already scored seven goals in all competitions for PSG.

His arrival at the start of September was timely, considering former Napoli frontman Cavani had suffered a hip injury at the start of the campaign, ruling him out for six weeks.

The Uruguay international has come off the bench in the past two Ligue 1 fixtures – including Friday’s shock 2-1 loss to lowly Dijon – but head coach Tuchel has yet to use Cavani alongside Icardi from the start.

According to Icardi, however, the duo – who know each other from their days playing in Serie A – can work in tandem together.
