Victor Osimhen has now grown into his teal element and has become very key for Napoli. Thanks to the new coach Luciano Spalletti who changed the team’s style to get the best out of Victor Osimhen which is in the good of the team.

In the Europa League this season, Osimhen has already scored 4 goals in 3 games, averaging a goal every 42 mins. He is just one goal short of Lyon’s Toko Ekambi for the highest goals in the competition this season.

With such a stat pad and talent, he is one of the emerging stars in the sport. The fact that big clubs are competing to get the Nigerian’s signature is no shock.

It is no secret that Bayern’s Lewandowski is at his peak at the moment. However, Poland international is also looking for a move outside of Munich. Considering this fact, the club is chasing Osimhen as a contingency plan and a potential replacement in case need be.
