Victor Osimhen Is A More Complete Striker Than Haaland, See Why


    Victor Osimhen is a dynamic force with jaw dropping performances in the Italian Serie A. He is taking the league by storm and creating magical scenes of his own.

    While Erling Haaland is busy trying to assist Manchester City in dragging Arsenal from the summit of the Premier League, the world’s best centre-forward is faraway in Italy motivating a title push for Napoli. 

    Probably not every follower of the Premier League is familiar with Victor Osimhen but it’s only a matter of time before they get accustomed to the excellent Nigerian.

    Victor Osimhen is charging the Neapolitans to their third Serie A title in the club’s existence and their first league title in over thirty (30) years. 

    It would also be their first league title “if they win it” since the days of the revered Diego Armando Maradona. 

    Napoli are thirteen (13) points clear at the top of the Serie A and they look nicely placed to win the scudetto this season.

    Osimhen reaching Maradona’s level in Naples?

    The aura and stature of Diego Maradona in Naples must be witnessed to be believed. Move around the city of Naples and you would see lots of small temples made in honour of the icon.

    Diego Maradona was seen as a god in the city of Naples. In the Spanish part of the city, the murals showing the great Argentine makes one gobsmacked and leaves one possibly speechless. 

    No footballer in Naples might achieve that feat of being idolized like Maradona, but if the Neapolitans get their hands on the crown like they did in the 1986/87 and 1989/90 season, it is safe to say Victor James Osimhen would be nearing that level. 

    The Nigerian might not be as potent in front of goal as Erling Braut Haaland, but one thing is certain and that is the fact that Osimhen is a more complete striker. 

    His flair, his speed, his ability to read his area, his physicality in addition to the chemistry he brings on board with his attacking teammates, amongst many other attributes puts Osimhen ahead of Haaland in terms of who is more grounded upfront.

    The 24-year-old who puts on the looks of a superhero, due to the protective mask safeguarding his cheekbone and eye socket as a result of the injury he sustained to that region of his body, is a tough nut to crack for defenders on any day.

    Goals scored by Victor Osimhen in the 2022/23 Serie A season so far and his partnership with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia

    Victor James Osimhen has scored a whooping seventeen (17) goals in eighteen (18) appearances in the 2022/23 Serie A season and he is on course to shatter many records this season.

    As opposed to Erling Braut Haaland, Victor Osimhen’s partnership with Khvicha Kvaratskhelia is one of the hottest partnerships in Europe this season. 

    Manchester City striker, Erling Haaland is back to the treatment table after he picked up an injury against Aston Villa with the Norwegian forward sustaining an apparent thigh injury.

    The fiery striker of the Neapolitans cheered vociferously and loudly as he showed his innate leadership abilities from the sidelines after he was substituted during a victory recently over A.S Roma. 

    Victor Osimhen’s strike against A.S Roma at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium, where he chested the ball nicely and smashed an irresistible shot beyond the goalie of A.S Roma is one of the best goals in Europe this season. 

    The ability of Victor James Osimhen makes him a prime Premier League striker, but he definitely would not go for a small amount as Aurelio De Laurentiis would want to milk so much from arguably his hottest player.

    Aurelio De Laurentiis and Cristiano Giuntoli handling of negotiations

    In the previous week, Aurelio De Laurentiis laid bare that Victor Osimhen was not for sale, he also has a very credible sporting director in Cristiano Giuntoli who has been ascribed as one of the game’s fiercest negotiators.

    Sporting directors, team owners and agents who had in the past come for his assets have all had an hard time trying to get their signature.

    Names like Kalidou Koulibaly, Dries Mertens are notable mentions amongst names that couldn’t leave Napoli in their prime due to the stumbling block that teams encountered in Aurelio De Laurentiis and Cristiano Giuntoli.

    Definitely, It won’t be a distinct preposition when teams come for his wonderful duo in Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Victor Osimhen
