Victor Osimhen is a young forward who resembles Odion Ighalo from the past in his style of play. He moved to Wolfsburg in 2017, proved too young there and went on a trip to Charleroi from Belgium, where he scored 12 goals in 25 games. After such a performance, Lille bought the talent. In France he showed the same high numbers as in Belgium. But in the summer of 2020 there was a bomb. Napoli paid about 70 million euros for the fast and textured Osimhen. Naturally, the Neapolitans clearly overpaid by 40 million. Victor’s numbers during the season are worse than in Belgium and France. He played 8 matches and scored 4 goals for the national team.
