Osimhen Is World’s Best Striker – Super Eagles Defender, Troost-Ekong Declares

Super Eagles assistant captain, William Troost-Ekong, has rated compatriot Victor Osimhen as the best striker in the world following his impressive performance for Napoli this season.

The 24-year-old striker has been in top form this season and has scored an astonishing 19 goals in 22 league games.

Speaking to DAZN during the broadcast ‘Tutti Bravi dal Sofa’ on Sunday, former Napoli defender Faouzi Ghoulam believed the Nigerian forward was not yet at the level of Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema and Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.

“Today, the best striker is (Karim) Benzema, but then there’s (Erling) Haaland, who is scoring a lot of goals. He’s a phenomenon in the penalty area,” he said.

However, Troost-Ekong said Osimhen is the finest striker in the world.

“Osimhen is probably the best striker in the world right now. I am happy for him because he has overcome difficult moments,” he was quoted as saying by Sports Italia.

The 29-year-old, who joined Salernitana on loan from Watford, also talked about the future of the forward following links to Manchester United in the Premier League.

He added, “It’s a very important year for him, he can win the Scudetto, and then he’ll be able to think about the future.”
