Osimhen tipped to become world’s best striker

By Daily Sports Nigeria on November 22, 2022

African football expert, Malu Mpasinkatu, has praised Nigeria international Victor Osimhen for his impact on Napoli, noting that the former Lille star has the qualities to become one of the best strikers in the world.

Mpasinkatu stated this on TMW Radio as reported by Area Napoli, but also advised that the 23-year-old Napoli goal poacher still needed to improve in some areas.

“How much has Osimhen grown? Spalletti immediately defined him as a force of nature, but he has to work on his shortcomings. He is a striker who needs to improve in terms of precision, this year he is already more so. And ‘ someone who doesn’t save himself for the team, you see him recovering the ball from behind and this has often affected his lucidity up front. He can become one of the best strikers in the world in the next few years,” he said.

He added that Osimhen’s performance had attracted interests from top European clubs and could be tempted by a move if he wins the Scudetto for Partenopei.

“Whether Osimhen could play in the summer? My feeling is that he is concentrating on making history for Napoli. Then it could depend on the Scudetto factor: if Napoli win it at the end of the year, we’ll see what happens.

“In Naples, he has found his dimension, there is an important African community in Naples and for this reason, he feels at home. If offers beyond any logic arrive at the end of the year they will evaluate.”

The Super Eagles star, who joined the Serie A leaders in September 2022 for a club record fee of €75m fee has been in spectacular form helping Napoli top the Serie A table with 41 points, and 11 goals in 14 games this season.

Osimhen emerged as the best young player of the year in 2022, winning the glamorous 2022 Globe Soccer Awards on Thursday beating Gavi and Valverde to the award.
