Osimhen: 'Napoli a dream come true'

Victor Osimhen believed it was 'impossible' for him to sign with a club like Napoli. ‘It’s a dream come true. I was selling water on the streets of Lagos’.

The Partenopei forward has contributed one assist in his first two games, but his presence helped the team secure a 2-0 win against Parma in the first match.

The Azzurri continued with a 6-0 win against Genoa on September 27, before they were blocked from travelling to face Juventus last weekend due to coronavirus in the squad.

Osimhen: 'Napoli best choice for me'

Victor Osimhen explains why he turned down the Premier League for Serie A and Napoli, idolising Didier Drogba and the ‘dream come true’ of following Diego Maradona’s footsteps.

The 21-year-old completed his transfer from Lille for €50m plus €10m in bonuses, Orestis Karnezis and three youth team players, for what the French club registered as a total of €81m.

The move had seemed in doubt for weeks, with Arsenal and Liverpool also interested, but he eventually signed for Napoli.
