Italian goalkeeper and teammate of Victor Osimhen, Alex Merret has praised the Super Eagles star, describing him as a 'great player'.

Osimhen has been phenomenal for Luciano Spalletti's side since joining from Ligue 1 outfit Lille last season.

The 23-year-old attacker has netted 12 goals and provided 4 assists in 22 Serie A appearances.

Osimhen's performance has earned him some praise from his teammate Alex Merret

“A great player, he still has to improve in some aspects, Meret told Il Napolista.

“But he has enormous potential. He is giving us a lot, but he can help us even more because he has unique and impressive qualities.”

The former Lille man is reportedly on the radar of many European clubs, with Arsenal and Newcastle United all reported to be interested in the Super Eagles star.
