The wait is over! Super Eagles striker victor Osimhen has officially become Napoli player after completing his much discussed switch to the Naples on Friday.
According to an official statement released by the Serie A giants via their official website, the 21—year—old star signed a five-year contract which cost nothing less than €50m.
This has finally put an end to rampant transfer speculations which linked him with a move to Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Having seen their lovely club completed the player’s switch, the Naples faithful will be expecting the former Lille star to hit the ground running as soon as possible.
In this vein, Perfectlife’s football analyst Ibukun Italoye has come up with three things Napoli fans should expect from the youngster. They are unveiled below:
1. Goals and More Goals
Let’s take a quick look at the player’s goal-scoring record right from his U17 days with the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria.
The then 16-year-old created a new record by becoming the first player to score 10 goals in the history of the U17 World Cup tournament.
He achieved this feat during 2015 U17 World Cup in Chile and he has never stopped bagging goals for club and country.
His performances in front of goal for Lille during the recently concluded season is a testament that he is a regular goal poacher who coach Gattuso can trust to lead his attacking lineup.
2. Many Assists
The 21-year-old star isn’t only known for his goal scoring prowess, he is equally known for his selflessness on the field of play.
This is to tell all Napoli fans that they should expect many assists from their newly signed hitman.
During his short spell in the French League, Osimhen provided six assists for his teammates.
Therefore, it won’t be out of place to suggest that he will help the team score more goals.
3. A Hardworking and Dedicated Osimhen
Are you looking for a player who is very dedicated to his work? Osimhen — who could be affected by Ighalo’s proposed return to Super Eagles— is the best example of player you are looking for.
He plays with total concentration, he is hungry for more success and he is ready to play his heart out for the team.
According to him via his twitter account, he is more than willing to give his all for the common goal of the team –and that’s what the fans should expect.
At this point, we can only wish the youngster the best of luck as he begins another phase of his career.
