Osimhen is now Africa’s most valuable player, replacing Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah.

Super Eagles star Victor Osimhen is now worth €100m, his highest valuation since he turned pro.

The Nigeria international is also more valuable than Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United. 

Osimhen has also been linked with a move to Manchester United, but he is likely going to cost more than Kane should the Red Devils make a move for him. 

Osimhen’s latest market valuation is not surprising as the Super Eagles star is having his best individual season yet this year. 

The ex-Lille star has scored 25 goals in 29 games for Napoli this season, setting up another five for his teammates.
