Peseiro is delighted with the 23-year-old, with the Super Eagles coach stating the forward is one of the best at the moment.

The Portuguese coach said to Napoli Magazine, as per Soccernet:

“Osimhen scores a lot and he is young. It is certainly not easy; usually a centre forward finds this level later on. But he always scores - at this moment, I don’t think I’m wrong if I say that every team in the world wants to buy him."

Peseiro hailed Osimhen for knowing how to press the attack, how to score and how to use his body, adding that the forward would fit well into any team.

Erik ten Hag wants Osimhen

Sports Brief earlier reported that Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has reportedly identified Victor Osimhen as the perfect replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese striker entered the final months of his two-year contract with the Red Devils, penned after his reunion with the club during the summer of 2021.

While United have the option of triggering a one-year extension in his deal, that is unlikely to happen, especially considering the striker's struggles this season.
