Victor Osimhen strikes gold again: Voted Nigerian Forward of the Season

  • Victor Osimhen continues his stellar run at the EaglesTracker Awards by securing his second accolade, this time as the Nigerian Forward of the Season for the 2022/2023 campaign.
  • Previously honoured with the Golden Boot award for his remarkable goal-scoring prowess, the 24-year-old striker has now been recognized as the top Nigerian frontman throughout the recently concluded season.

Osimhen's performance was nothing short of extraordinary, as he notched an impressive tally of 31 goals and contributed five assists, leading Napoli to their first Italian Serie A title (Scudetto) in 33 years.

This outstanding achievement also makes him the first Nigerian to claim the coveted top goalscorer award in Italy's top-flight league. He also surpassed the legendary AC Milan icon George Weah as the most prolific African player in Serie A history.

Additionally, Osimhen played a pivotal role in guiding Napoli to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals for the first time in the club's history.

Such exceptional displays have elevated his market value to a staggering €120 million, making him the highest-valued player ever in Serie A.

With his exceptional finishing skills and undeniable impact on the game, Osimhen rightfully earns the distinction of the Forward of the Season award.
