Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has said that he hopes Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen can produce the goods away from the Italian Serie A.

Osimhen is currently one of the most sought-after strikers in the game today and has been linked to major clubs such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The 25-year-old played a starring role in Napoli’s 1-1 draw against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League earlier this week, prompting Henry to voice his opinion on the African star.

Henry, who is said to be a big fan of Osimhen, hopes that the Napoli forward can showcase his talent in a different league, on a consistent basis.

“How can he be? He showed last year what he could do,” Henry told CBS Sports, as per Now Arsenal.

“He won African player of the year along the way. I would like to see him now, what can you do in the Prem?

“Wherever you are going to go. PSG or the Prem. I want to see him doing it year in, year out.”
