Super Eagles of Nigeria striker, Victor Osimhen, has been named the best striker in the Italian Serie A for the 2022 and 2023 football season.
The organiser of the Italian topflight, Lega Serie A, made the announcement on their Twitter handle on Friday, June 2.
The Napoli striker beat AC Milan forward Rafael Leao and Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez to the individual accolade.
Osimhen played a vital role in Napoli’s Scudetto win, the club’s first in more than 30 years.
The 24-year-old striker scored 25 league goals for the Partenopei this season.
The 2022–23 campaign comes to a close on Sunday, and Osimhen is on track to be named Capocannoniere (top scorer).
