Napoli head coach, Luciano Spalletti says Victor Osimhen is one of the best strikers in football at the moment and predicted the Nigerian will become an extraordinary player, reports PNO Sports.

Osimhen scored the winning goal for the Partenopei in Sunday night’s 1-0 away win against AS Roma.

The Nigeria international, making his first start for six weeks fired home from an impossible angle after blazing past Chris Smalling.

The 23-year-has now scored in his last three appearances for the Blues.

“Osimhen has these sudden changes of pace that only he can do. When he gets his emotions sorted out, he will become extraordinary,” Spalletti told DAZN.

“At times he tries to do everything himself, attacks the ball and the goal without realising where his teammates are. But he is physical, he is strong and we need him to complete the squad, also in the air.”

Napoli remain unbeaten in Serie A this season and the win against Roma was their 11th consecutive victory across all competitions.
