Victor Osimhen is currently on the hotspot and enjoying show of love as he attained new height in his professional football journey with Napoli club side.

As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, Napoli fans are so much in love with Victor Osimhen that they are not only queuing to buy his shirt but also replicas of his protective mask outside the Stadio Maradona.

The Nigeria international is Serie A’s leading scorer with 17 goals in 18 matches, including eight in his last six appearances.


He bagged one in Sunday’s 3-0 win against Cremonese and Gazzetta reports the Partenopei supporters even queued to buy replicas of the protective mask he’s been wearing for more than a year following a cheekbone injury suffered against Inter in November 2021.

Replicas of Osimhen’s mask are on sale in stalls outside the stadium and hundreds of fans were seen queueing to buy the gadget on Sunday, before their game with Cremonese.

The pink describes Osimhen as the ‘king of Naples’ with the Partenopei dreaming of winning their first title in over 30 years.

They top Serie A with 59 points after 22 games, losing  just one league game — against second-place Inter milan — as the chances of a first league triumph after three decades increasingly look brighter.

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old continues to equal and break records in Italy as he further enjoys his blistering performance.

On Sunday, Osimhen scored Napoli’s second goal in their 3-0 win over struggling Cremonese and in doing so, he became just the club’s second player in their history to score in six consecutive matches after Argentine Gonzalo Higuain, who did the same during his time at Napoli in the 2015/16 season.

After failing to score in Napoli’s 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan in January, the Super Eagles striker had since found the back of the net against Sampdoria, Juventus, Salernitana, AS Roma, Spezia Calcio and Cremonese, scoring eight goals in the process.
