Two Reasons Why Paulo Di Canio Is Right About Osimhen Being Better Than Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku.

Paulo Di Canio played as a striker for a host of clubs around Europe and the retired Italian forward has been talking about Romelu Lukaku and Victor Osimhen.

Victor Osimhen has been in sparkling form for club and country this year. The Nigerian striker has been arguably the best player in the Serie-A this season, scoring vital goals for Napoli.

Rimelu Lukaku just made a switch back to Chelsea this season and he initially hit the ground running, but the Belgian has not scored for Chelsea in six games now.

Paolo Di Canio has been comparing Osimhen with Lukaku. The Italian claims that Osimhen is a better striker than Lukaku.

What Di Canio Said About Osimhen And Lukaku:

"Osimhen is something else, he has a wickedness, he is not limp ... it means he is better than Lukaku: who then in the last five games no goals but that's another matter."

Paolo Di Canio.

Di Canio’s point about Osimhen is very true. The Nigerian is a far more better striker to have than Romelu Lukaku, and here are two reasons why.

Osimhen Has A Better Style Of Play.

Victor Osimhen is a well rounded player. He is tall and very good aerially, he has pace, he is also a very strong player. Romelu Lukaku also possess all the above attributes, but Osimhen is not a one-dimensional striker.

Lukaku is mostly know for holding up play bringing his teammates into the game, but Osimhen’s game is unpredictable. The Nigerian can run at defenders and he is also very good in tight spaces.


Victor Osimhen can play in an team in the world because, he can play as a mobile number 9 and also a target man, he is more like Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski. Both players have the physical abilities to hold up play, but they can still be more fluid and mobile, unlike Lukaku.

Romelu Lukaku is the bigger striker with more experience and goals, but Victor Osimhen can become even better. Osimhen has been better than Lukaku this season and the Nigerian striker could even go on to win the golden boot in the Italian Serie-A this season.
