Osimhen is perfect signing – Agostineli
Former Napoli coach, Andrea Agostinelli has insisted that the Serie A giants have made a very good signing in Victor Osimhen while also looking to see the forward’s impact in Italy.
Agostinelli, having seen Osimhen play several times also feels very strongly that the Nigerian will paint the Serie A red with goals following his summer transfer to
The transfer was finally completed on July 31 for €50m in cash, €10m in bonuses plus ownership of goalkeeper, Orestis Karnezis and three youth team players of the Partenopei.
It took longer because Osimhen fired his agent, Jean-Gerard Benoit Czajka after touring Napoli’s facilities, meeting President Aurelio De Laurentiis and coach Gennaro Gattuso.
Agostinelli spoke about the Suprr Eagles attacker on Radio Musica Television while on punditry duties for Saturday’s Champions League match which Napoli lost 3-1 to Barcelona.
“Victor Osimhen? I have seen him play several times and therefore, I believe I have the right competence to judge him. For me, Napoli made a very good signing,” Agostinelli said.
“The Nigerian is very strong and still has considerable room for improvement. Then, of course, we will have to see his impact in the Italian league”.
The 21-year-old has been in the form of his life since joining Lille from Sporting Charleroi of Belgium last year, netting 18 goals and making six assists in 38 games in all competitions.
