‘Osimhen shifts balance more than Lukaku’ – Bologna coach Mihajlovic hails Napoli star

 The Nigeria star continues to dazzle in front of goal and he is still the leading scorer for the Parthenopeans this campaign

Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic has labelled Napoli striker Victor Osimhen as a "really strong" player ahead of their Serie A clash on Friday.

Osimhen has scored nine goals in 11 competitive matches this season and his fine goalscoring form has helped Luciano Spalletti’s men maintain an unbeaten streak in the Italian top-flight.

Napoli are three points behind leaders AC Milan, with a game in hand, and Mihajlovic described the Nigeria international as "an engine" who controls the Parthenopeans’ frontline, comparing him to former Inter Milan talisman Romelu Lukaku, who scored 24 Serie A goals last campaign.
