Napoli's update on Osimhen

According to Football Italia, Osimhen has resumed training.

“Victor Osimhen was in full training, while Amir Rrahmani underwent physio ahead of medical tests on Tuesday.”

Osimhen has played 5 Serie A matches this season and has scored two goals. When he returns, he should fit right in with the high-flying Napoli aside.

The Italian giants signed the Nigerian in 2020 from Lille for €70 million, a club record. So far, he's been worth every penny.

According to transfermarkt, he's scored 30 goals in 68 games for the Italian side and if Napoli's form is anything to go by, he will add many more to his tally.
