Determined to open his Serie A goal accounts this weekend, Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has been studying some Atalanta match footages, Tuttomecartosports can exclusively report.
Napoli dropped three points against champions Juventus after the Naples side failed to travel to Turin for the encounter over Covid-19 fears. But coach Genaro Gattuso has encouraged Osimhen to study their Saturday’s opponents closely and learn one or two things that could aid his goal-scoring on Saturday.
The former Lille forward impressed everyone in his first few weeks in Naples, scoring double hat-tricks in friendly games, but is yet to find the net in the Serie A after three matches.
Gazzettadellosport reported that the former Royal Charleroi striker missed Nigeria two friendly matches, and stayed back in Castel Volturno Bubble to study how the Serie A leaders initiate the attack, and how best he can press and recover high balls to make Napoli attack more dangerous.
Napoli landed the highly rated Nigeria forward from Lille in a reported club-record deal said to be worth an initial €50million.
The 21-year-old attacker spent just a single season in France but showed enough to seal a big move to Serie A, with Napoli understood to have given him a five-year contract.
It remains to be seen if Osimhen would have learned enough to help Napoli triumph over an in-form Atalanta that is yet to drop a point from nine and most importantly open his Serie A goal account.
