Newly promoted Salernitana lead the Serie A scramble for the Nigerian ahead of Lazio , Fiorentina , Sampdoria , Genoa and Monza.

There are also French and Belgian clubs interested in the Super Eagle whose contract with Crotone ends in 2022.

The Nigerian striker scored 20 goals in the Serie A in the just ended season, same number as those scored by Ciro Immobile, one more than Lorenzo Insigne, three better than Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martínez and only four behind Romelu Lukaku and nine fewer than Juventus super star, Cristiano Ronaldo who topped the scorers chat at the end of the season .

The 20 goals are the most scored by a Nigerian in a single Serie A season while his overall tally of 30 across three seasons is also the most goals scored in the championship by a Nigerian.
