Victor Osimhen of the Super Eagles and Napoli has been named one of the fastest Serie A strikers, glamsquad reports.
The 24-year-old, who is in the best shape of his life right now, is a driving force for Luciano Spalletti’s side.
Speed is another of Osimhen’s characteristics that distinguishes him as a prolific striker. He currently leads the Serie A scoring charts with 13 league goals.
According to Corriere dello Sport, the former Lille star is one of the fastest and runs like no one else, breaking his previous derby record against Salernitania.
The Super Eagles striker also scored twice and assisted once as Naples defeated Juventus 5-1 on Serie A matchday 18 last weekend.
“From the Olimpico to Maradona on the wings of Osimhen,” the Italian newspaper wrote. The league’s top scorer with 13 goals in 15 games, and then the son of the wind, who adapted perfectly to the Saturday gusts and storm of the Salerno derby, parading away at 35.5 kilometers per hour. A crazy shot never before seen in a match.”
Osimhen’s excellent form has helped his team to the top of Serie A with 50 points from 19 games, 12 more than second-placed AC Milan.
