Super Eagles and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen has been listed as one of the fastest Serie A strikers.

The 24-year-old, who is in the best shape of his life right now, is one of Luciano Spalletti’s main motivators.

One of Osimhen’s traits that makes him a successful striker and sets him apart from others is speed. With 13 league goals, he now leads the Serie A scoring rankings.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the former Lille star is one of the fastest and runs like nobody else, breaking his previous mark in the derby against Salernitana.

The Super Eagles striker contributed one assist and two goals to Naples’ 5-1 victory over Juventus last weekend in Serie A matchday 18.

The Italian paper wrote;

“From the Olimpico to Maradona on the wings of Osimhen. The league’s top scorer with 13 goals in 15 games and then the son of the wind who on the Saturday gusts and storm of the Salerno derby adapted perfectly to the weather parading away at 35.5 kilometres per hour. A crazy shot never recorded in a match so far.”

Osimhen has led his club to the top of the Serie A standings with 50 points from 19 games, 12 points more than AC Milan in second place.
