Italian Serie A Golden Boot Race After Osimhen Scored Another Goal Against Fiorentina

Gradually Victor Osimhen is getting close to making history as his goals keep coming even after securing the league title with Napoli this season.

Osimhen scored a 74th minute penalty against Fiorentina on Sunday, to record his 23rd minute strike in his 27th league game of the season. The Nigerian Striker surprised many as he joined the goals Scorers Chart late and still sit on top of the log at this time even after winning the title. Osimhen will become the first African Player in the Italian Serie A to win both the Scudetto and Golden Boot in a season if he eventually beat Inter's Lautaro Martinez and others to the individual award this season. The Nigerian Striker continue to shock many supporters following his ability to create and grab goals even in tough matches.

For Lautaro Martinez, scoring 19 goals could be a huge feat but still trail Osimhen by 4 goals which doesn't look like what he could overturn with the left matches Inter Milan will play before the season close. However, he's done well for himself by keeping the usual suspects like Dzeko, Ciro immobile and Lukaku off track since gaining his form in the Serie A.

Lookman of Atalanta and Nzola of Spezia used to be very vibrant scoring goals until they fizzled out of form. As the season remains some 4 games to go for the major Teams, Nzola and Lookman will need like 21 goals each to overtake Victor Osimhen of Napoli. Not many will be shocked to see the Nigerian become the first African Player to win both the Scudetto and Golden Boot in a season, considering his work rate and concentration this season. Do you still think Osimhen will remain with Napoli after achieving this great feat this season? Share your thoughts.
