Following another impressive season with Napoli, Nigeria international, Victor Osimhen, has been included in the 2023/24 Serie A Team of The Season.

Osimhen made the 23-man list unveiled on the official social media channels of the Italian Serie A.

While he was not as prolific as he was during the 2022/23 season when he finished as the Serie A top scorer with 26 goals, guiding Napoli to their first Scudetto title in over three decades, Osimhen still boasts of decent numbers considering how much Napoli have struggled.

In a season where the former champions lost 11 games and only managed 13 wins, the striker, who missed a month of action during his involvement with the Super Eagles at the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast early this year, still managed to score 15 goals and had three assists in 24 league games.

Despite his below-standard performance, Osimhen remains Napoli’s top scorer and third-highest scorer in the topflight league.

Interestingly, only Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martínez (24 goals) and Juventus’s Dušan Vlahović (16) scored more goals than Osimhen in the Italian topflight.Related News

Meanwhile, there was no room for the man of the moment, Ademola Lookman, despite his stellar performance for Atalanta.

The 26-year-old had 15 goal contributions (nine goals and six assists) from 29 Serie A games.
