Osimhen has been in talks with Napoli over a big-money move.


               
           
               
                   

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has opined that Napoli will be a right move for Victor Osimhen who he describes as a fighter.


               
           
               
                   

Osimhen who impressed at Lille in the 2019/2020 season has been in talks with Napoli who are ready to splash over a €70m for him.


               
           
               
                   

Rohr who gave the 21-year-old his international debut says the club will provide an opportunity for Osimhen to further develop as a player.


               
           
               
                   

Of course, we are talking about a scorer, a player of power and speed. He is a fighter, he never accepts defeat, he always wants to win, even in training matches,” Rohr told Radio Punto Nuovo.

During the last African Cup, he didn’t play very much, he had a very important player for Nigeria like Ighalo in front of him. When, however, Ighalo was forced to stop for an injury, Osimhen had his chance.


               
           
               
                   

“Victor fought all week, training hard, but without ever giving problems to me or teammates if he remained on the bench.


               
           
               
                   

“Victor has a great player mentality. And often, in our chats, I advised him to take an important step and go to a level club, where he can find the right space to play continuously and grow.


               
           
               
                   

“He is a guy who loves to work hard and who needs to be in constant competition. I hope Victor talks about it with Gattuso and can then find the right role within the Napoli project."


               
           
               
                   

Osimhen exceeded expectations at Lille where he scored 18 goals in 31 games across all competitions and was voted the club's Player of the Season.


               
           
               
                   

The Nigeria international was in Naples to speak with Napoli although he has returned to his base in France.


               
           
               
                   

People close to the striker said he is not keen on the move to Napoli and is holding out for an English club.
