    This guy is a bankable goalpoacher anytime, any match; his temperaments and shenanigans aside……who agrees with me?

    With Lorenzo Isigne not there anymore, him hogging the ball, lets see if he is able to thrive. Napoli will most likely finish mid table because a lot of key players left, I mean a lot. Dres Mertens, Koulibaly, Isigne and the good goalkeeper Ospina. The owner of napoli seems the be cheap but always puts an expensive price tag on his players.

    But Osimhen still needs to work on himself. His 1v1 and his finishing. He is always creating turnovers, shooting too early and losing the ball when he sees the opposition coming. He should reach 20 goals this season, 5 more from last season.
