I recommended Osimhen’s signing – Jorginho


Arsenal midfielder, Jorginho has revealed that Napoli sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli spoke to him on the phone before signing Victor Osimhen.


Osimhen joined the Serie A side from Lille in 2020.

The Nigerian striker has gone on to establish himself as one of the best strikers in the world.

Osimhen is currently top scorer in Serie A with 18 goals from 19 appearances.

“They are doing incredible things, honestly, I didn’t know the guy playing on the wing [ Kvaratskhelia],” Jorginho told DAZN.


“I knew Osimhen. I had played against him in the Champions League and he had given a hard time to our defenders.


“Giuntoli called me before signing him and I told him to sign him straight away, he is very promising and is doing really well. They [Osimhen and Kvara] are flying and everything is going well. There is winning energy.”
