Highly-respected Sky Sport Italia pundit Paolo Condò reckons that Victor Osimhen is living up to his billing following a bright start to his career at Serie A club Napoli.
Napoli fans will be excited about their record acquisition, having opened his goalscoring account against Atalanta on Saturday and in the previous match, he notched an assist.
Condò gushed about the qualities Osimhen brings to the table and believes the Super Eagles striker is replicating his form at Lille, for whom he scored 18 goals over the course of 2019-2020.
In quotes carried by Mundo Napoli, Condò stated: “Napoli are absolutely in the running for the Scudetto!
“This Osimhen is keeping 100% of all the good things we thought of seeing him in Lille, on a tactical level he is opening the opponent’s defences.
“If he arrives in the area you don’t take the ball away from him, he runs, shoots and even scores. The spaces he creates for his teammates are fabulous”.
If performance-related variables and wages are included, the signing of Osimhen could cost Napoli up to 100 million euros.
