Beppe Signori, a former Italy and Lazio striker, has compared Victor Osimhen of the Super Eagles and Napoli to Didier Drogba of Chelsea.
Signori praised Osimhen in an interview with an Italian sports daily, saying he helped Napoli come back from a two-goal deficit to earn a late draw at Leicester City in their Europa League Group C opening.
“He has everything: technique, strength, elevation, speed and power. He is a player who is still young, he has room for improvement and I think he has shown a part of what he can do.”
When asked about making a comparison, the former Lazio hitman stated: “I say Drogba. They are very similar physically and technically.”
Osimhen has made two appearances in the Serie A this season, failing to find the back of the net in any, but his dominant display against Leicester City is sure to fill the Super Eagles striker with confidence.
Osimhen scored ten goals, and assisted thrice in the 2020-21 Serie A season with Napoli.
