Spalletti on Osimhen

The 64-year-old has praised the Nigerian forward's performance this season and expects him to do well in any team he plays for after being linked with a move away from Italy.

According to Romano Fabrizio, Spalletti was speaking on Victor Osimhen's potential sale, and said, “Osimhen will do excellent things wherever he will go to play”.

“Trust me, he’s a fantastic player. He can score, press, help with hard work and he can also improve many skills. Victor will become a top, top player”.

Victor Osimhen has been linked with a move away from Napoli after an impressive season with the club and his manager has backed him to do well in any club he plays.

Osimhen on top teams radar

The 23-year-old performance this season did not go unnoticed after helping Napoli secure the league title.

The Nigerian has been monitored by several top clubs in Europe with the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich all monitoring him at Napoli.

However, Victor Osimhen is yet to make a decision about moving away from Napoli in the summer having been subjected to a possible transfer.

The Napoli striker was brought in for a huge sum of €70 million making him the most expensive Nigerian player and if they are to sell him they will request nothing less than €150 million for his transfer.
