Victor Osimhen’s goalscoring sensation has not gone unnoticed following the striker’s performances in Napoli’s pre-season friendlies.
And already, fans of the Italian Serie A side are going crazy over the former Lille of France forward.
The Nigerian who recently completed a record €70million move to Napoli has hit the ground running bagging two hat-tricks in his first two test games, an explosive start which has endeared Osimhen into the hearts of the club fans.
According to Top Italian newspaper, Il Roma, Osimhen’s form has wowed Napoli fans who have dubbed him ‘Mister Hat-Trick.’
The 21-year-old netted his first hat-trick in Napoli shirt against L’Aquila last week and followed it up with another hat-trick in the second test game against Teramo last Friday.
“Six goals have already been scored by Victor Osimhen, who immediately entered the hearts of the Azzurri supporters,” reports Il Roma on the front page under the title: “Osimhen, mister hat-trick. Fans already crazy about Victor”.
Osimhen who scored 18 goals in 38 games for Lille will be looking to replicate his goalscoring form for Napoli when the Serie A resumes next week.
