Napoli paid a club-record fee of €80 million to the French club to secure the attacker’s signature, making him the most expensive Nigerian player in history.
Despite finding the net a number of times warm-up games, the Super Eagles centre-forward has only managed one goal in six appearances across all competitions since his arrival at Stadio San Paolo. Former Napoli centre-forward Andrea Carnevale has urged Victor Osimhen to be more selfish in order to score more goals.
Carnevale, who has no doubt of the abilities of the young attacker, believes he needs to focus on scoring than setting up goals.
“I know Osimhen. For me he is very strong,” Carnevale told Napoli magazine.
“I advise him to be less generous towards his teammates and to start dedicating himself to scoring because he has many in his legs.”
