Former Juventus striker, Fabrizio Ravanelli has heaped plaudits on Victor Osimhen and claimed it will be difficult for Napoli to find a replacement for the Nigerian.

Osimhen played a crucial role in Napoli’s Scudetto success last season.

The 25-year-old scored 26 goals in 32 league appearances to help the Partenopei win the title for the first time in over three decades.

The forward is expected to leave the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium this summer despite penning a contract extension with Napoli last December.

Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal and Chelsea are all around the player, who has a release clause of around €120-130m in his contract.

Ravanelli stated that Napoli will find it difficult to get a suitable replacement for Osimhen if leaves the club at the end of the current campaign.

“Osimhen is among the best strikers in the world. He has incredible ferocity and is not afraid of anything. It will not be easy for Napoli to replace him”, Ravanelli said per Napoli Magazine.
