    20+ plus goals loading, about time. In the previous game he tied he career high in goals. That Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen duo works wonders. Ever since Mertens, Ruiz and Insigne left this team has been flourishing. I remember people were being disillusioned saying he his teammates were stopping him. He got a bunch of new teammates and quality around him like Anguissa, and he is doing well.

    But the english teams want to break this up. People want to take away Kvaratskhelia from napoli. Premier league clubs have no space for Osimhen. He would be played out of place or on the bench. The only thing they gain is the Nigerian fanbase who also wants him to play in the premier league because thats all they watch or they are located in england. Look at what happen to Awoniyi. Left union in the top 4 currently in the bundesliga just to be in a Nigerian community in england. The highest bought player for bottom half forest that dont even start regularly. And I was a big fan of him and how he played. I could care less for him now. Stay out the premier league and thrive. A lot of Nigerians and Africans do better outside of the premier league. Dont fall for the next Drogba pickup line. Dont limit yourself. You can be a star outside of the premier league, where premier leage only care for english players

      Osimhen will excel in any leaque the guy has got quality @Shuma

    • Adisboy 1 month ago

      @Shuma, Awoniyi is a bad example to prove your point. The reason he’s not playing is because of injury which will keep him out for 8 weeks. Prior to injury he was Forest top scorer with 5 goals and was starting. Awoniyi is doing well in the Premier League.

      @Shuma, I do get your love for Osimhen, however using Awoniyi performance has a yardstick contradicts your point.
      Awoniyi has scored 5 goals in 7 premiership starts.
      You may be right right on point with the preferential treatment to Africa players in Englend.
      Odimhem is currently among the top 3 strikers in the world..
      Haaland, Kane, Osimhen.
      My preferred the team for him is Real Madrid.

        Thank you @Larry & Co. Awoniyi is doing well in the premiership. He won two man of the match awards on the bounce before that injury set in. Gave both Chelsea and Liverpool lot of wahala when he played against them. Guy is making his mark in the premiership. I wish him speedy recovery.

    preferential treatment against*

  • Glory 1 month ago

    Osimene stay away from premier league. Except the likes of PSG, BARCA, REAL MADRID are not interested,then maybe Chelsea or Arsenal or better still remain in Napoli. Never Man utd especially with Rashford banging in the goals.

    Thumbs up brotherman Adisboy. Only evil fans with evil intentions will condemn the English Premer League. Nigerian players do well in England. If Osimhen goes to Manchester United, he will be unstoppable.

  • pompei 1 month ago

    Hahaha, Glory, make dem no use preferential treatment to frustrate his destiny.
    However, with the kind of form Osimhen is showing at the moment, even hard core English managers will bench their English boys for Osimhen. As long as he continues to perform like this, dem no get choice. Their hands are tied.

    • Glory 1 month ago

      Hahahaha.. brodaman Pompeii, definitely not for football reason. I have always said it here, this age belongs to these fabulous 3, Osimene, Mbappe and Haaland. But football in England suffers greatly from fans/ betting toxicity. Combine that with many other negatives, then you will understand what lies btw Mourinho’s line. STILL STRUGGLING TO THINK OF A PLAYER THAT WON WORLDS BEST PLAYER PLAYING IN THE PREMIER LEAGUE.

        Ronaldo did it with Man U

        • Ignatius Abo 1 month ago

          Thumbs up brotherman Lord AMO. What fans will do to ridicule the English Premier League is shocking. Kanu won African Footballer of The Year in England. Okocha won BBC footballer of the year in England… Evil fans with evil intentions will come here to vomit raw sewage. Salah and Mane won many awards playing for Liverpool, Mane was even nominated for Balon d’or. Nonsense….

  • When osimhen was banging in goals at Charleroi everybody said he should stay there and develop for one more season but he moved to Lille and did better……when osimhen was lighting up Ligue1 with goals for Lille everybody said he should remain in France and develop further for one more season but he moved to Napoli and he is breaking records at the moment……Now another chorus of stay where you are and develop has started again…… Osimhen is a journey man footballer who Excel in even thougher conditions……He will explode in the premier league because the atmosphere of the premier league was created for osimhen…… osimhen loves intensity and glamour and the EPL is filled with glamour…….. osimhen loves pressure which brings out the best in him and the pressure in the EPL will bring joy to his heart… …. Osimhen has pace in excess which is the major ingredient the EPL needs……. Osimhen derives joy from capitalizing on the opponents errors which is very common in the EPL……. Osimhen finds it easy to explore spaces and the EPL is all about using spaces…….. Osimhen loves to bring his strength to bear on opponents and the EPL is all about strength…… Osimhen was tailor made for the EPL and I wish osimhen will one day Grace the Premier league……Life is all about trying new things…..life itself is an adventure…… Everyone has a different story and Destiny…….If the EPL didn’t favour Mr A it doesn’t mean that the EPL will not favour Mr B……..We can only find out when he tries his own luck.

      @Akp Well said bro. Osimhen is a world class striker and will definitely perform at any League. He will even score more in the premiership. People seem to forget Serie A defenders are fucking tough and are always ready to break your leg without hesitation.

      I’m glad he has change his game a bit which is very good & it has been helping him to stay fit for as long as possible.

      No more running after defenders just to steal the ball as if they collect him bread and no more going after every loose balls just like when Lion won hunt down his prey.

      If Osimhen eventually goes to EPL, all the defenders are in trouble cuz he will bully them week in week out. Van Diyk & the rest of Liverpool defence is a good case study for this
