Victor Osimhen is the first African footballer to win the Serie A Golden Boot.


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.
