Napoli's Osimhen fastest player in Italian Serie A MD 9, ahead of Juventus, Udinese stars
Napoli striker Victor Osimhen was the fastest player in the Serie A in the last round of matches, matchday nine, according to reports.

Area Napoli says the Nigeria international recorded the fastest speed in the Italian top-flight during the meeting between AS Roma and Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Sunday evening.

Osimhen reached a top speed of 34.69 km / h to place first in the division ahead of Juventus right-back Danilo and Udinese defender Nahuel Molina, who clocked 34.27 km / h and 33.84 km / h respectively.

The speed record in this season's Serie A belongs to an African player, Spezia Calcio's Angola international center forward M'Bala Nzola, who reached a speed of 35.56 km / h on matchday six.

Blessed with pace and physicality, Osimhen has been able to justify his 70 million euro price tag in the new season after an indifferent maiden campaign with the Blues.

The 22-year-old has appeared in all the matches played by Napoli in the Serie A with the exception of the 2-1 win at Genoa, scoring five goals.

And he has impressed more in Europe with four goals in three matches - one of which he started.
