Leicester will host their Italian opponents on September 16 in a UEFA Europa League Group C fixture.
Napoli is not new to Patson after facing them at his former club and Austrian champions RB Salzburg during their 2019/2020 UEFA Champions League Group E campaign.
“It didn’t go our way mostly, so I’m looking forward to a new beginning with Leicester, and hopefully we can get a positive result,” Patson told LCFC.COM.
“Napoli are a very strong team; very physical and they always fight to the end. Every team has a weakness though, and we must make the most of that with our strengths.”
That season, Italains drew 1-1 at home with Salzburg but defeated the Austrians champions 3-2 away in Austria.
Meanwhile, the Napoli game will come four days before Patson’s EPL Chipolopolo reunion with his former RB Salzburg club mate Enock Mwepu who plays for Brighton.
