According to Osimhen, Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, and fellow Nigerians, John Obi Mikel and Odion Ighalo, inspired him to reach greater heights.

The 22-year-old is enjoying his best start to a Serie A season after joining Napoli from Lille in the summer of 2020.

The Super Eagles forward has so far scored nine goals for both club and country this season and has now explained his inspiration, how it feels to play in one of the world’s top leagues.

“It feels good, it all started like a dream, boyhood dream from the slum,” Osimhen said in a chat with an international teammate, William Troost-Ekong, on the latter’s YouTube channel.

“I just wanted to become a professional player, inspired by a lot of legends like Didier Drogba, Odion Ighalo, Mikel Obi, and the rest.

“And I feel like, to be able to achieve this feat, is one of my biggest achievements in life and I am really grateful to God for that.”
