Osimhen listed among fastest Serie A strikers

By Daily Sports Nigeria on January 28, 2023

Nigeria international and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has been rated as one of the fastest strikers in the Serie A this season.

The 24-year-old despite missing several matches due to injuries is having an extraordinary season, the best of his career.

The Nigerian is a driving force for Luciano Spalletti’s side, a leader capable of giving grit and motivation to all his teammates.

Speed is also among Osimhen’s qualities that make him a prolific striker and distinguishes him from others and he currently sits on top of the Serie A scorers’ charts with 13 league goals.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the former Lille star is one of the fastest and runs like nobody else improving on his previous record in the derby against Salernitania.

The Super Eagles striker also scored twice and provided one assist as Naples thrashed Turin side Juventus 5-1 on Serie A match-day 18 last weekend.

The Italian paper read, “From the Olimpico to Maradona on the wings of Osimhen. The league’s top scorer with 13 goals in 15 games and then the son of the wind who on the Saturday gusts and storm of the Salerno derby adapted perfectly to the weather parading away at 35.5 kilometres per hour. A crazy shot never recorded in a match so far.”

The fast and prolific Nigerian striker is having a fantastic season at Napoli and has scored 14 times in 19 appearances in all competitions in the ongoing campaign.

His fine form has guided the Parthenopeans to the top of the Serie A table with 50 points from 19 matches, 12 points more than second-placed AC Milan.
