Ivory Coast and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba believes Nigeria forward Victor Osimhen can be the best in the world since he is a great striker.

The Napoli attacker has been in great form for club and country.

Last season, he scored 14 goals for Napoli in Serie A and provided two assists as the team finished in the Uefa Champions League places.

In the 2023 AFCON qualifiers, Osimhen has already scored five goals in two matches as the Super Eagles lead Group A with maximum points.

Drogba insists the Nigeria striker has the talent and he just needs momentum to reach greater heights.

The 44-year-old former Blues player said in an interview with Marco Giordano:

I like him [Osimhen] a lot. Great striker. He can be the best in the world and when you have the talent like he has got, I think it’s just a question of momentum.

Osimhen has been linked with various English Premier League clubs ahead of the new season.

Arsenal have generated the most speculation there, but whether they will continue pursuing the striker is not yet known after signing Manchester City attacker Gabriel Jesus.
