Napoli Striker Victor Osimhen Is World's Best No. 9

 Victor Osimhen - the world's best No 9 - is driving a feverish club and city on to their first Serie A title in 33 years… the £100m-rated Man United target is a more complete player than Erling Haaland and so good luck prising him away from Napoli!

Not every Premier League follower is familiar with Victor Osimhen but they soon will be. The Nigerian forward is driving Napoli towards only the third Serie A title in their history, and their first since the days of Diego Maradona. They are 13 points clear at the top ahead of Sunday's meeting with struggling Cremonese.

He may not be quite as prolific as Haaland - who is? - but Osimhen is a more complete No 9. Sporting a protective mask after breaking his cheekbone and eye socket in November 2021, the 24-year-old even looks like a superhero.

He has 16 goals in 17 Serie A appearances this term but there is so much more to his game. His speed terrifies defenders, as does his strength.

Unlike Haaland, he links play superbly and has developed a deadly understanding with fellow attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, another of Europe's top players this season.

Roaring his team on from sidelines after he had been substituted during a recent win over Roma, Osimhen showed himself to be natural leader.

His goal in that game - controlling the ball on his chest and knee before despatching a sweet volley - was one of the best in Europe's top five leagues this season.

Osimhen's qualities make him the ideal Premier League No 9 but he would not come cheap.
