N38.1b-rated striker Osimhen in top five of most expensive players in Serie A

Victor Osimhen has been ranked among the top five most expensive players in the Italian Serie A by Football Benchmark,  a football statistics website that provides in-depth understanding and analysis of the business of football, and the market values of thousands of footballers.


The Nigeria international is the fourth most expensive player in the Italian topflight at 80 million euros (approximately N38.1 billion in Nigerian currency), Naples-based daily newspaper Il Mattino has reported. 


At the top of the list is AC Milan's Portugal World Cup star Rafael Leão who is valued at 90 million euros., followed by Inter Milan stars Nicolò Barella (€83m) and 2022 World Cup winner Lautaro Martínez (€81.5m).


Completing the top five is AC Milan's France national teamer Theo Hernandez (€79m), who started the World Cup final against Argentina on December 18.


Of the five most expensive players in the Serie A, Osimhen gained the most, with an increase of 12.5 million euros, compared to his valuation in September 2022.


The 2015 U17 World Cup winner has seen his stock rise after impressive performances for Napoli this season with nine goals in eleven appearances to lead the scoring chart in Italy. 


Osimhen has two and a half years left on his contract with Napoli, whom he joined from Lille in 2020 for a club record fee of 70 million euros.
