Filippo Inzaghi believes Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is the best, beyond Karim Benzema following his great displays.

The 23-year-old Nigeria international is having a great season for Napoli who currently sit top of the Serie A table. His superb displays have caught the attention of the 49-year-old, Inzaghi, who played for Juventus and AC Milan in the same league and is currently the head coach of Serie B club Reggina.

Inzaghi has hailed Osimhen’s qualities as second to none and that he is better than Ballon d’Or winner Benzema, who turns out for Real Madrid.

 “If we think of Napoli, Osimhen is a true centre-forward,” Inzaghi said

“He attacks deep, and keeps the ball, Osimhen is probably the best right now, beyond Benzema”

The Super Eagles striker has currently scored 10 goals in 14 games this season and will be looking to finish the season with the golden boot.
