Led by Diego Maradona, Napoli won the title in the 1989/90 season but since then have had to endure relegation and mid-table obscurity.
But the prospect of winning the Serie A title does not appear unrealistic as Cavani, helped by his talented team-mates, has helped Napoli become a genuine side worthy of contention in the title race. Significantly, they were also the only top four side who managed to register a win over the past few days as Juventus, Inter Milan and Fiorentina all suffered either defeats or a draw.
The Uruguayan believes that his side, now just two points behind leaders Juventus, can continue to grab wins in this manner and finish the season as the Serie A champions.
"It's not such an impossible dream," he told Chi magazine.
"The sides in front of us can be caught. Let's just say that my team and I are on it."
"When I am on the pitch, I want to win at all costs and really struggle to swallow a defeat. A player can be as meek as a dove off the field, but on it we must become eagles."
Nevertheless, Cavani put cold water on reports that a lack of silverware could prompt him to seek an exit from the club. He revealed himself to be passionate about the Neapolitan side and confessed that he is content living the simple life and does not clamour for attention and luxury.
"I didn't come here to do more than Diego Armando Maradona. I just wanted to enter the hearts of the people and the history of the club," he continued in the interview.
"As for my private time, I am really not remotely interested in showbiz. I don't need a Ferrari or a PlayStation.
"I prefer to spend my time in nature.
"When I retire, I will return to Uruguay and work with animals."
Napoli next take on lowly Pescara who were powerless against Roma over the previous weekend and should, therefore, not pose much of a challenge on Sunday.
