Napoli right-back, Giovanni Di Lorenzo, hailed Victor Osimhen while answering questions from some fans at the Dimaro-Folgarida congress centre.
The 28-year-old was asked how strong the Nigerian striker was and he responded positively, while also stating that the Serie A Young Player of The Year still had room for improvement.
“How strong is Osimhen? He is very strong, for me, he still has ample room for improvement. We hope that he will score many goals next year. The morale in the locker room after all these transfers? There is enthusiasm to restart, after two years we are back in the Champions League and we are proud.
“We have to face this season trying to improve and grow. We are ready and energized to start again.”
Osimhen, 23, has been linked with a move away from Napoli, with the Partenopei placing a €100m price tag on the Nigeria international
The forward scored 18 goals and provided 6 assists last season for Napoli and is also on the radar of Manchester United, Arsenal, and Bayern Munich.
Osimhen recently scored four goals against Sao Tome in a 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in June.
