'I Like To Get Involved With The Play' - Napoli No. 9 Osimhen On The Type Of Striker He Is
Super Eagles star Victor Osimhen has described the type of striker he is, few days before he is expected to make his non-competitive debut for his new club Napoli in a three-team friendly tournament featuring Aquila and Castel di Sangro.

The former Lille star is competing with Napoli's all-time top goalscorer Dries Mertens to play the role of a number 9 for the Blues in the upcoming season.

Osimhen explained that he likes to be involved in build-up play and his teammates are key to his success.

When asked at Wednesday's press conference the kind of striker he is, Osimhen said : "I like to get involved with the play. My team-mates are vital to me.

"My motto is never say never. Everything is possible in football. This is a squad of great players and it’s a big step up for me to be here.

"I’m focusing on doing everything I can for the team and helping my team-mates."

The 21-year-old Osimhen has moved to Napoli in exchange for 70 million euros, making him the most expensive African-born player in history.
