“We know that the head of state of our country, Muhammadu Buhari, is also happy with this transfer.

Osimhen is a young but already very strong footballer.

“He will perhaps be the highest paid African footballer, a sign that we are talking about a very talented boy.

“He is strong, fast, tactical.

He has a characteristic of the Nigerian population: he never gives up.

For these reasons, I compare him to Ronaldo.

” Osimhen was linked with possible moves to Premier League and La Liga teams this summer, but Ogunyemi is of the opinion that Napoli is the best club for him to continue his development.
