Former Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain striker, Edinson Cavani, has hailed Nigeria international Victor Osimhen for delivering the Italian Serie A title to the city of Naples after 33 years.
Cavani who was on the payroll of Napoli between 2010 to 2013 before leaving for PSG failed to achieve the feat accomplished by Osimhen and the Uruguayan has revealed that he is an admirer of the incredible work rate of the ex-Lille frontman.
Cavani who scored 104 goals in three seasons at Napoli with 78 of those goals coming in the league says he is especially impressed with the hunger the Nigerian plays with.
“Osimhen? I really like his hunger. He’s incredible. He never gives up,” the Valencia striker told Radio Kiss Kiss. “In the end, that (work rate) is what makes you a difference-maker and makes you a competitive player.
“He has everything to continue growing and to become one of the best strikers in the world. The Scudetto was won thanks to his hunger.”
Cavani’s former club Manchester United are one of the front runners to sign the Nigerian in the summer who has been valued at €150m by Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis.
