Nigerian striker, Victor Osimhen is eager to play in next season’s champions league with Serie A side, Napoli, his agent William D’Avilla has said.

Osimhen has been in sublime form in recent weeks netting two goals and an assist in Napoli’s 4-1 away win over Spezia in the Serie A on Saturday bringing his tally for the season to 10. The current form came after the striker initially struggled to impress following his club-record transfer in the summer from Ligue 1 side, Lille.

The 22-year-old copped a shoulder injury on international duty with Nigeria in November and only returned to action for the Partenopei in January.

Osimhen has bagged seven goals in his last eight appearances for the Partenopei.

D’Avila in an interview with kisskissnapoli said, “Victor is happy about yesterday’s victory, he feels more and more at ease in this team and when you score a goal it gets easier. He is proud to wear the Napoli shirt and is keen to thank the club for their patience,”

“He is scoring like a machine because he enjoys having everyone’s trust and because of the excellent atmosphere in the locker room, which is helping him a lot. The negative judgments? We never gave them weight, we never listened to them.

“If a player is paid so much it is natural that the city expects the best performances straight away. Gattuso? The relationship with the coach is perfect, Rino is an excellent coach. Have we heard from Galtier about next year? I don’t know (laughs).

“Maybe the coach has sent him a message to compliment him, but not to talk about next season’s Napoli. Victor’s goal is to win the last 3 games because he wants to play in the #UCL with Napoli. Favourite system? The important thing is that he feels comfortable.

“Victor’s goal is to win these last three games because he wants to play the Champions League with Napoli.”
