    Congrats, finally we can rest from all Osimhen this Osinhen that.

    Focus on your career and make your fans proud. And help us to forget Yekini.

    One piece of advice, focus on scoring on the field and not on the other room. Don’t be distracted by the many Edo girls in Italy.

    Wishing you God’s grace and strength.

      from Napoli

      Notizie | 31/07/2020

      SSC Napoli are delighted to announce the signing of Victor Osimhen from Lille on a permanent transfer.

      The 21-year-old striker was born in Lagos, Nigeria on 29 December 1998.

      Osimhen came through the youth ranks at Ultimate Strikers Academy in Lagos and turned professional shortly after his 18th birthday when he joined Wolfsburg.

      He spent the 2017/18 season in Germany before moving to Charleroi on loan the following year. He was an instant success in the Jupiler Pro League, netting 20 goals in 36 appearances.

      Lille snapped him up in the summer of 2019 and he went on to play 38 times for the French side, bagging 18 goals in the process.

      Osimhen helped Nigeria win the U17 World Cup in 2015, when he finished as the tournament’s top scorer with 10 goals. He made his full Nigeria debut in June 2017 and so far has 10 caps and four goals to his name

        Osimhen sure has plenty of goals in him. Average 0.5 goals per game ratio everywhere he goes is something you cant find easily. Napoli presents the best platform for him for the next big step in his career. A bigger club than lille, but with not so high stakes and at the same time not to low in class for a player of his calibre. And at 21, we might just be looking at the next mega superstar from Africa (in the mould of Etoo, Drogba, and Mane) to lead the lines successfully for top clubs in Europe.

        May God Almighty be with you Victor. 200 million Nigerians are with you in prayers. Just keep your head low and never stop striving to get better.
