Former Italian top striker Castel di Sangro believes Victor Osimhen shares similar characteristics with former Napoli striker, Edison Cavani.
In an exclusive chat with calciomecartoweb, Sangro lauded the former Lille striker and described the Nigerian as a striker with extraordinary characteristics that will propel Napoli to greater height this season.
He then advised the former Charleroi striker to improve on his technical level as well as his movement if he must excel with Napoli.
“Osimhen and Cavani have something in common; same running ability. Obviously, being very young, Osimhen must improve on his technical level, in his movements, and also he must learn to help the team defend too.
“But he has extraordinary characteristics like the Uruguayan Cavani to make Napoli fans fall in love with his game.
” Osimhen also reminds me of Gervinho. Of course, he has another role, but Osimhen must make use of his speed too,” he told corrierodellosports.
Osimhen scored a hat-trick in the first eight minutes of Napoli’s 11-0 friendly win over L’Aquila, with Lorenzo Insigne’s treble, Dries Mertens, and Chucky Lozano braces too.
