Napoli talisman has always dreamt of playing in the Premier League but for now, he is focused on winning the Serie A with Napoli
Despite his ambitions to play in the Premier League, Napoli star Victor Osimhen is solely focused on winning the scudetto alongside teammate Kvaratskhelia.
The Nigerian center-forward has scored 19 goals in 20 Serie A outings so far. He is nudging Napoli ever closer to their third-ever Serie A title in their history.
Osimhen reveals how Napoli’s title challenge was born
Although Osimhen has been linked with EPL clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United in the past he is now only focused on Serie A and Napoli.
Asked about the Premier League, Osimhen said: “I think it is an ambition of all players. And who knows, one day…
“Right now, I assure you, it doesn’t even cross my mind. It would distract me from a beautiful season. Only Napoli.”
The duo of Osimhen and Kvaratskhelia has been almost unstoppable this season. Osimhen revealed what he thinks of the 21-year-old winger, sharing the fact that they had “empathy from the first moment”.
“He is very strong, but also a golden boy. This matters to me,” said the 24-year-old Osimhen.
With an 18-point gap between them and their pursuers and only 14 games remaining, Napoli are set to win the title. Osimhen went on to tell a touching story about how their belief in a title challenge came about.
“He is very strong, but also a golden boy“
“There is a preserved photo that testifies to the moment,” Osimhen said. “It was summer and after a fairly hard training session, I was talking to Anguissa.
“I said to him: ‘Frank, you know that our team is strong and we can really try to win the Scudetto.’
“He was skeptical and I convinced him. Spalletti approaches and asks us what we are talking about. I tell him, he looks at me and says: ‘If your team-mates are convinced, as you are, yes we can try.’
“This is how our beautiful story was born, made up of matches, training sessions, men who don’t spare themselves. Made of leaders.”
