Lukaku commended Luciano Spalletti on doing a great job, as per Soccernet:

"[Napoli] have really strong players, I’ve been out and seen many of their games. Napoli are in a good moment. Osimhen scores many goals, Zielinski as well, Kvara on the left, Lozano or Politano on the right."

Belgium’s number 9 has singled out the former Lille star as a strong striker and the best in Serie A at the moment, ahead of Inter’s clash with the Parthenopeans.

"Osimhen is really strong. Now he’s the best striker. We have to be honest. He’s strong and he’s doing really well for Napoli. They are first in the standings. We have respect, but not fear.”

Napoli prepare Osimhen 'bumper' contract

Sports Brief earlier reported that Italian giants Napoli will offer a massive contract extension to Nigerian international Osimhen, who continues to shine in Naples.

Several clubs are trailing the Super Eagles forward ahead of the January transfer window, with the talented player linked with English sides Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle.

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are also looking to land the striker, but Napoli are now preparing to offer a mega money deal to Osimhen to convince him to stay in the Italian top flight.
