Victor Osimhen becomes First African player to win Serie A Golden Boot

Napoli striker Osimhen created history by being the first African player to win the renowned Italian Serie A golden boot award, commonly known as the “Capocannoniere.” Osimhen defeated Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez to win the coveted individual award. Osimhen Golden Boot

The Nigerian star has firmly established himself as one of the game’s most lethal strikers. This season, Napoli won the Italian top division after a 33-year wait thanks in large part to his remarkable goal-scoring record of 26 goals in 32 Serie A matches. His most recent goal came from the penalty spot as Napoli defeated Sampdoria 2-0 to finish the season. Napoli Serie A Golden Boot

It goes without saying that the Nigerian international, who was also awarded the best striker in Serie A for the season, has drawn interest from prestigious European teams and will likely be the talk of the summer transfer market. Since last year, Manchester United, for example, has been keeping a close eye on him.
