Following his brilliant performances last season for Napoli in all competitions, Victor Osimhen is currently a target for some European sides as he is linked with a move to the Premier League.
Despite suffering a facial injury last season while playing for Napoli, Victor Osimhen was still able to score 14 league goals and also created two assists.
Napoli also finished last season in third position on the final League table, which means they will play in the Champions League next term. According to the reports on GOAL and Soccernet, Christian Obodo urged Victor Osimhen to continue with his fine form for Napoli next season in the Serie A.
Christian Obodo’s reaction to Osimhen
I was aware of Osimhen’s potential even before he joined Napoli.
I think this is the ideal place for a player like Victor, in addition to the adequacy of the coach.
Spalletti’s work was relevant and allowed the Nigerian to grow a lot both at Napoli and with the national team. I had no doubts about the impact that the former Lille star have had in Napoli.
Victor Osimhen reacts as Arsenal submit £51M bid to Napoli
Reports have it that English Premier League club Arsenal submitted a £51million bid for the forward who scored four times in Nigeria’s 10-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe in the AFCON qualifiers.
Osimhen has just spent two seasons with the Italian giants, but his impressive form has attracted interest from a number of clubs in England.
The 23-year-old scored 18 goals in 32 matches for the Patenopei last season and reports have it that the Gunners tabled a £51millionbid for the Nigerian, though Napoli have rejected it as they value him at closer to £85million.
