Didier Drogba, a former captain of COTE D’IVOIRE and Chelsea, thinks that Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has what it takes to be the best in the world.
For both club and country, the Napoli forward has been in excellent form. He had 14 goals and two assists for Napoli in Serie A last season, helping the team finish in the Uefa Champions League spots.
“I like him [Osimhen] a lot. Great striker. He can be the best in the world and when you have the talent like he has got, I think it’s just a question of momentum,” the 44-year-old former Blues player said in an interview with Marco Giordano.
Osimhen has found the target on 28 occasions through two seasons at Napoli, with his stock continuing to rise as further potential is unlocked.
He is said to be registering on the recruitment radar across Europe, with plenty of big-spending sides in the Premier League keeping a close eye on his development.
