    I like this kine attention.

      Osimhen is yet to reach his destination club but atleast should stay another season with Napoli before looking at offers here and there. He need that to attain a legend status at the club. Offers will always keep coming because he is a fantastic striker but Osigoal pls stay at Napoli in other to improve more and sharpen your finishing then you will be unstoppable

  • Footballfanatic 3 weeks ago

    Please bro do not leave Napoli yet and don’t let greedy agents convince you to leave. Keep working hard and scoring goals. A consistent performance for 1 or 2 more seasons will seal you a super move especially with a good performance at the worldcup (IF WE QUALIFY)

  • Chelsea is a no go area…..But Man City badly needs an out and out striker like osimhen…… Someone ready to run and work for the team….. someone who can finish chances regularly…… someone intelligent with his legs and has pace…….Man City have been playing with a false 9 for a while now and it’s telling on them…… Osimhen will be perfect for guadiola’s style of play and he will score goals because they will creat a lot of chances for him……Napoli will not allow osimhen go this season as they are already dreaming And osimhen in part and parcel of that dream…… Osimhen too is gradually finding a home at Naples and he looks so so happy there for the now because of the love shown to him…,.Well this is football and anything is possible.

    • @AKP have no fear bro, I personally believe that Lukaku wouldn’t like to see Osimhen at Chelsea. I can confidently say like I have backed this boy since Under – 17 and my doubt has not lost ground since He regained form at Sporting Chareloi. If Osimhen goes to Chelsea which I don’t think is the right move just yet. Purely for the fact that Luciano Spalletti allows Osimhen to play to his strength and as noticed against Caligari he is slowly building the team around Osimhen as well as Insigne of course.

      If he goes to Chelsea or any big team in England they are too tactical these days and that might hamper his game as he may not be allowed freedom to express his game as he is in Napoli. He needs to stay at Napoli for at least 1 more season after this current one and, be free and learn as much as possible from Mister Spalleti, because frm what I have seen this Napoli team is Really strong and would have gone deep in this seasons Champions League had they not narrowly missed out.

      But in saying that Osimhen will bench Lukaku if he goes to Chelsea or they will play them together cause Osimhen is faster than most wingers Today

  • I remember when he was about leaving lille for Napoli and many people here were against it saying he might not be able to cope with the hard style of play in italy but after just a few games this season he has showed he can play and score goals in any league in the world.
    As for him not leaving Napoli, football is business and all clubs want to make profits so if Napoli gets a good offer for him, I think they will let him go. Something in the range of 120 million will do it.
    Plus it will mean Osimhen gets improved wages which im not sure he is getting for the work he is putting in.
    Dont get me wrong Im sure he is paid handsomely, but is he in the range of haaland, lewandoski, kane im not sure but he should be. Thats what a tranfer can do for him.

    • Lagaboss 3 weeks ago

      Absolutely sometimes we the fans we wish what others don’t wish for themselves. Football is a language and the language is in goals and money go and grab whatever money available right now my brother. England will pay you more and that money will sustain your children unborn.

    • @Sportfan His is in that League oo, he is. People will say I am jumping ahead of Myself again, But I will say it again. Yes he and Haaland are in the same League. I firmly believe that. The battle will be who is best between the two at the moment Haaland is leading statistically but I feel Osimhen Steam is now rolling will be an interesting battle

  • Peter Opotoboruwe 3 weeks ago

    Chelsea is where Osihmen belongs. He will perform more than Didier Drogba and Diego Costa.

    • Greenturf 3 weeks ago

      Can he bench Lukaku?Tuchel plays with a lone striker upfront most of the times so having a Lukaku who apparently is one of the best centre forwards the world has and Osimhen a young striker with great potentials in the same team,I don’t think it’s a good idea for one of this two to sit on the bench it’s cruel and a waste.

    • Chairmanfemi 3 weeks ago

      Says a Chelsea fan whereas Man City are in dire need of a striker for the past 2 seasons. If at all Oshimen is moving, Man City should be his destination

  • Ore wa Oshimen…i beg you no go consider Chelsea for now o….personally i watched your games, you are very good with your head, legs, technically you are very sound…the Two clubs i wish you can consider if you want to make a move away from Napoli is MANCHESTER CITY AND REAL MADRID..but chelsea, no way bro.

    • Chima E Samuels 3 weeks ago

      God bless you bro Hala Madrid!

    • Chima E Samuels 3 weeks ago

      Chelsea has killed many great strikers Shevy,Etoo,Costa and even Lukaku was once a mockery at Chelsea. I wish him well this second time, but the Chelsea I know is not what I wish Osi to near. He will fire in goals at Madrid where point 9 are given alot of shots on target to prove themselves as winner or average. The osi I know is good at taking chances at goal so he will conquer!

      • Greenturf 3 weeks ago

        But Madrid has Benzema

        • Benzema is 33 tho

          • Greenturf 3 weeks ago

            Yeah but in your dreams you think Madrid would bench Benzema?Nah don’t think so,I know he’s 33 but still playing at a very high level just like Jamie Vardy does for Leicester,both are cult heroes,our Iheanacho is on the bench today despite great form that’s how much Leicester city values Jamie Vardy.
            So Osimhen should borrow a leaf.Benzema looks like he’s not slowing down for another three years at least.I don’t think it’s a good idea for Osimhen to sit on the bench for another couple of years.
            Manchester city, Manchester United and Barcelona looks a good fit for Osimhen because this three listed don’t have any traditional striker better than Osimhen.

        • Chima E Samuels 3 weeks ago

          Benz is aging if we loose Halaand we’ll definitely get Osigoal. Madrid is building a New Era, Bez will have the compliment of Osigoal as a fellow striker. Madrid are looking for the best talents no wonder we have Vinicius Hazard yet we are going for Mbappe!

    • Gba yii with that Real Madrid you mention, he will scores goals tire at Real Madrid by pairing him with Big Ben upfront.

  • Ask Samuel Eto if he will advice Oshimen to move to Man City coached by the same Gerdiola… your guess is as good as mine.

  • My advice for Osimhen is that he should spend another season with Napoli. It’s very likely that they will qualify for next season’s Champion’s League, so he plays next Champion’s League with Napoli then move to Real Madrid if they are still interested.

  • Osigoal can bench any striker in the world because he has what they don’t have. Please can anyone tell me of any striker in the world that always get all the four back busy throughout the game. Most strikers are wait and get and then run but Osigoal is not like that. Benzema does not have the kind of strength Osigoal has and that is an edge. Man City don’t even have top9. The Jesus they have is not functioning that is why they decided to convert winter to top9. Chelsea have Lukaku which is good. The only thing Lukaku has more than Osigoal right now is the experience. And weight. But to terrorise the back four, Lukaku can’t do that. Even Bacelonia don’t have a good top9 now. In fact Osigoal can succeed in any clue if he could succeed in Napoli (Italy)

  • Elijah Samson 3 weeks ago

    To show how good he is, the coach that brought him to Napoli has left yet the new one could not do without him. No coach has watch Osigoal this season that didn’t fall in love with him. Just call L. City coach and give him Osigoal, he will grab him with the two hands. Give him to AS Roma and see if Tammy will not be drop to the bench. Even if Chelsea want him, he should first look at how despirate the coach needs him. But I know the present Chelsea coach doesn’t kill talent. Younger players played under him at PSG. Just look at how Napoli show that they needed him at all cost when he was still at Lille.

  • Elijah Samson 3 weeks ago

    I could imagine the fear on Napoli squad when they were about to play Juventus without Osigoal. But as soon as he was cleared to play, everyone was happy.

  • Edoman 3 weeks ago

    Osimemen will fit any Club any day. He is a natural. He is more like Didier Drogba than Drogba himself. He is 22. He is born great and gifted.

  • pompei 3 weeks ago

    I support the notion that Man City is the BEST DESTINATION for Big Vic at this time.
    For one, Man City are in dire need of a number 9. Osimhen will walk straight into the starting eleven from day one. Na who go challenge am? Gabriel Jesus? Ferran Torres? He will walk, no, he will casually stroll, straight into the starting eleven.
    Additionally, imagine Osimhen playing with all those creative guys behind him! De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Mahrez, Sterling, Gundogan, Foden, Grealish, haaaaaa! There will be a steady supply of passes and crosses coming his way, and Osimhen will be there, just lapping everything up!
    His energetic and aggressive style will give Man City a completely different dimension and increase their competitive edge. The Man City defense will have more protection, because teams will think twice about committing men forward when they have Osimhen lurking around their danger area. I see Man City winning the Champions League if they had Osimhen. Without Osimhen, they are very dangerous. With Osimhen, their danger is amplified!
    If Man City is not possible, then he can go to Chelsea and pair Lukaku upfront. I pity defenses all around the world that are unfortunate enough to come face to face with a Lukaku/Osimhen combo. Na die be dat. It will be bloody hell!
    Even if Tuchel continues to play with only one top nine, Osimhen will still get plenty of game time. If Lukaku starts this game, Osimhen can enter in the 60th minute. Then Osimhen can start the next game, and Lukaku can come in later in similar fashion. Rotating them like that is likely what Tuchel will do.
