Nigeria international Victor Osimhen scored his first goal for Napoli in their 4-1 win over Atalanta at Stadio San Paolo in Serie A this past weekend.

The 21-year-old joined the Italian club from Lille for a reported €70 million in September after scoring 18 goals in 38 games for the French team across all competitions last season.

“I’m happy for Chucky’s brace, but Osimhen’s goal makes me happy because he hadn’t scored so far and he deserved it for the hard work done for the team,” Napoli head coach Gennaro Gattuso told the club’s website.

“Victor was my wish and I thank the President for having satisfied me. It wasn’t easy but we have bought a player who is very important to us.”
