Napoli striker Osimhen made history by being the first African player to take home the prestigious Italian Serie A golden boot trophy, also known as the “Capocannoniere”.
The Nigerian star has solidified his position as one of the most dangerous strikers in the league. His incredible goal-scoring record of 26 goals in 32 Serie A games helped Napoli win the Italian top league this season, ending a 33-year drought. His most recent goal came from the penalty spot in Napoli’s 2-0 season-ending victory over Sampdoria.
It goes without saying that the major European teams have expressed interest in the Nigerian international, who was also named the best striker in Serie A for the season, and that he will probably be the topic of conversation during the summer transfer market.
Manchester United, for instance, has been closely monitoring him since last year. If Spurs refuse to move Harry Kane to a Premier League rival, United may completely focus on Osimhen given that Erik ten Hag is ready to buy an exceptional striker this summer.
Aurelio De Laurentiis, the president of Napoli, intends to hold out for an astonishing €160 million to sell their great striker, but his demand could prove to be a significant hurdle.
