Agent insists Napoli striker Osimhen has everything

Italian agent Andrea D'Amico has declared Napoli centre-forward Victor Osimhen as a "complete striker".

D'Amico helped move Osimhen from Lille to Napoli.

“In the last few games, he has played 308 minutes and scored three goals," D'Amico said. “We know how difficult it is to settle immediately in Serie A.

“Other champions of the past, not surprisingly, needed up to six months. Victor was unlucky, he couldn't show how strong he is.

“We have only smelled the scent of his strength, but I'm convinced that he will be able to do very well. He has great physique and great technical abilities. He's a complete striker.

“He wouldn't have been an important signing in the history of Napoli if he didn't have these qualities. It's not a kid whose value was unknown that has arrived."

He also said: “He's an intelligent boy. Sometimes, the mental aspect is underestimated. But it all starts from there.

“If you are not a great man and you aren't very smart, you can't do this job at the top level. Victor is a time bomb ready to explode.

“He reminds me a lot of the first Edinson Cavani, but he arrived even stronger. Cavani, when he arrived from Palermo, was a semi-unknown and played as a winger.

“The best is yet to come from Osimhen."
