For his aggressiveness and power, Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen, has been rated high by Italian pundit Matteo Bonnetti, PUNCH Sports Extra reports.
Bonnetti made this assessment during a show on CBS Sports, where he revealed that he would pick Super Eagles striker over Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic and Lazio talisman Ciro Immobile.
Osimhen joined Napoli from Lille two years ago for a record fee of €81m with ads-on.
Since arriving at Napoli, he has been at his very best despite struggling with injuries.
He dislocated his shoulder in November 2020 while playing for Nigeria against Sierra Leone, then hit the back of his head during a Serie A match against Atalanta last year and was briefly knocked unconscious, ruled out for three games, and had a head clash with Inter defender Milan Skriniar in November 2021.
Despite a season marred by injuries, the 23-year-old managed to score 14 Serie A goals in 27 appearances for the Partenopeans.
Having started the 2022/23 season in fine form, where he already scored two goals in his first two games, Osimhen picked up another injury in Napoli’s 4-1 win against Liverpool in their UEFA Champions League Group A opening game September 7, which ruled him out for six weeks.
