Victor Osimhen has taken his goals haul to 13 in the Italian Serie A after scoring the winning goal in Napoli’s 2-0 away win over Salernitana on Saturday.
Andre-Frank Anguissa combined with Mario Rui to pull back from the by-line, as Di Lorenzo took a touch and smashed the finish off the underside of the crossbar on the stroke of 45th minute to end the first half in favour of Napoli.
Upon restart of the second half, the Nigerian striker tapped in a rebound shot after Eljif Elmas right-foot strike from outside the box bounced off the far post, into his path to make it a fourth goalscoring league match in five, and put himself four goals clear of his nearest chasers in the league’s scoring charts.
Another Nigerian attacker, Ademola Lookman has been painting the Italian Serie A with goals after closing in on his closest rival Osimhen.
Lookman reduced the tally between himself and Osimhen to two after grabbing his 11 Serie A goal against Juventus.
The 25-year-old joined La Dea for €9m in August and has proved to be worth every penny, having scored 13 goals in 19 appearances, including two against Juventus on Saturday evening.
Already, Juventus are already looking to sign the deadly attacker who has been dubbed defender’s nightmare in the Scudetto.
Both players have been selected for the Serie A player of the month award category for January.
