Victor Osimhen is set to the Napoli talisman this season

Veteran Italian coach Arrigo Sacchi has stated that Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen is in line to have a successful 2022/23 season at Napoli.

The legendary 76-year-old manager highlighted Osimhen as one of the stars he is looking forward to for the upcoming 2022/23 Serie A season.

Osimhen is set to lead Napoli's line this season, with most of the scoring burden expected to be carried by the club's record signing.

Sacchi however believes that the Nigerian international has the potential to improve on what he delivered for the Partenopei last season.

The multiple Serie A winning manager told Gazzetta Dello Sport as reported by Calcio Napoli that Osimhen would have picked up more skills after spending one full season under the tutelage of Spalletti at Napoli.

Arrigo Sacchi said: "I'm very curious to see Osimhen at work. He has enormous potential, in my opinion not yet all expressed.

"A year of Spalletti 's lessons, both on a technical and behavioral level, should have helped him to improve and get closer to being that leader, which Napoli needs."

Osimhen was the top scorer for Napoli during the 2021/22 season, bagging 18 goals and six (6) assists in just 32 appearances in all competitions.

The Super Eagles striker is expected to significantly increase his goal tally this season with signs pointing to the fact that he will be Napoli's designated penalty taker this season.
