Despite winning the league early, Osimhem says he now wakes up in fulfilment knowing what he achieved with 'underdogs' Napoli.

"This season Napoli actually won the Scudetto," he said while talking to a group of journalist at dinner in a video shared on social media. "Since the game against Udinese, now I wake up every morning with fulfillment. It is the best.
"That is why the celebration is different from the others. Because when you are used to success it's normal but when you are wanting success and you finally get it. You know the true meaning of success.
"A lot of them put us as underdogs and you come up from nothing to win something. You want to celebrate every time."

Osimhen's future at Napoli has become the subject of intense transfer speculation with PSG and Bayern Munich reportedly interested in his services, as reported by ESPN.
