Former AS Roma midfielder Stefano Impallomeni has blasted Victor Osimhen for not scoring enough goals to match his unquestionable talents.

Impallomeni’s criticism may be a bit harsh on Osimhen, who missed a large chunk of the 2021-22 season due to a horrific facial injury but still managed to finish among the top ten goal scorers in Serie A.

Aside from his 15 league goals in 23 games, Osimhen struck four times in five Europa League matches before Barcelona dumped Napoli out of the competition.

Osimhen’s goals helped Il Partenopei finish in the Champions League places, and the 23-year-old was duly awarded the Serie A’s best U-23 player’s prize.

But one-time Parma ace Stefano Impallomeni is not impressed with Osimhen’s output.

Impallomeni admits the young Nigerian forward has the potential to be a phenomenal striker.

But the 54-year-old is quick to point out that Osimhen is still way below that dizzying height, and he would not shed a tear should Napoli decide to cash in on the Super Eagles star.

Impallomeni told TMW Radio as per Tutto Napoli:

If a sensational offer for Osimhen were to arrive, I would sell him.

He is important, but he still seems a lot to me.

Spalletti does not say it openly; he has improved but scores little for the skills he has. He is an excellent player, but he scores little. Maybe he will become a phenomenon, but now he is not.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham are reportedly interested in Osimhen
