Former Super Eagles midfielder, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has tipped Victor Osimhen to win the Africa Player of the year award.

Osimhen has enjoyed a prolific season for Napoli in the Serie A, leading their title charge.

The Super Eagles striker is the top scorer in the Italian division with 17 goals in 18 games.

Okocha is confident that the former Lille striker has done enough to coast home with the award.

“Yes definitely, I think he is the best player in Africa right now and I have no doubt that he is a very strong contender for that award,” Okocha told The Punch.

“Osinmeh is hungry to score goals and shoots smartly when he playing. It’s not something that you can learn, it comes naturally, maybe when you grow up in this side of the world, you learn on the streets how to fetch for yourself.

“You can see in Osimhen’s eyes the hunger for success and I think that is what is driving him.”

The 24-year-old has been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United due to his blistering form.

He was named January Player of the month in Serie A and also won the goal of the month award for his stunning goal against Roma.

Osimhen and his Napoli teammates will be in action against Sassuolo on Friday night.
