Osimhen Is On Haaland’s Level – Ex-Argentina Striker
Nigeria and Napoli striker, Victor OsimhenNigeria and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen is comparable to Erling Haaland of Manchester City, according to former Argentina and Napoli striker Roberto El Pampa Sosa.
Osimhen has had an exceptional 2022-2023 season so far at Napoli. He has played for the Partenopeans in 28 games this season, scoring 25 goals and providing 5 assists in all competitions.
His goals have been crucial for Napoli, who are presently 19 points ahead of second-placed Lazio in the Serie A standings.
Also, thanks to his four goals, Napoli have now advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time in the club’s history.
Due to his current form, the 24-year-old hitman has attracted interest from Europe’s top-flight clubs like PSG, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Arsenal.
Reports in Italy claimed that Napoli would demand at least €120 million before selling Osimhen despite paying €75 million for his services less than two seasons ago.
In his reaction to Osimhen’s current form, Sosa believes Osimhen is at the pinnacle of his career, along with Manchester City player Haaland, who has scored 42 goals in 37 appearances this season.
In an interview with Napoli Magazine, the former Napoli and Argentina striker said, “It’s essential to play in Serie A. I find it hard to say Osimhen is not good technically.”
“The first game against Roma comes to mind. Without technique, the goal he scored would have been impossible. Osimhen is the future of football, he will win many titles. He is at Haaland’s level.”
