Napoli can’t replace ‘unique striker’ Osimhen – Calderisi

Former Italy forward, Guiseppe Galderisi believed Napoli will find it difficult to replace Victor Osimhen if the striker departs the club this summer.

Osimhen is expected to leave the former Serie A champions at the end of the season.

The 25-year-old played a crucial role in Napoli’s Scudetto success last season, scoring 26 goals in 32 league appearances.

The Nigerian international has already scored 15 goals this season despite missing a number of games due to injury and international duty.

Galderisi claimed Osimhen is unique and it would be difficult to get a like-for-like replacement for him.

“He (Osimhen) always makes the right move. He has Characteristics that I don’t see around Europe. You find another Osimhen, he commands respect in the penalty area,” Galderisi quoted by Calcio Napoli.
