Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen is now Napoli’s 44th all-time scorer after the Super Eagles goal-machine scored his 28th goal for the Naples since he arrived in the summer of 2020, per Soccernet.
The 24-year-old found the back of the net in Napoli’s 3-0 when he opened the scoring in the 32nd minute inside the Diego Amando Maradona Stadium.
It was his 14th league goal this season which takes his tally in all competitions this season to 18 thereby becoming the club’s 44th all-time top scorer.
Osimhen overtook former Napoli stars Petisso Bruno Pesaola and Claudio on the list as he continues to enjoy a successful individual this season.
It could have been more as the 23-year-old missed eight games earlier in the season due to a cheekbone fracture after colliding in-air against Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.
Napoli won just three times in eight games in his absence and have won nine times in the fifteen games since his return from injury.
Meanwhile, Premier League giants Manchester United are said to have made a contact with the Osimhen as the Red Devils are desperate to sign a striker this summer.
Manchester United are unsure of Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the Theatre of Dreams and are now making efforts to the potential signing of the Nigerian striker.
