Udinese defender Jaka Bijol has named Napoli striker and Chelsea transfer target Victor Osimhen as the toughest striker he has faced.

Bijol came up against Osimhen when Napoli hosted Udinese on November 12, their last Serie A match before the World Cup break, and the Nigerian made life difficult for him, scoring from a towering header as Napoli won 3-2.

“I had a difficult life in the last match against Napoli,” Bijol said during an interview with Chiamarsi Bomber.

“Oshimen is a really strong striker. He is fast and knows how to move well.”

Filippo Inzaghi believes Osimhen is the best striker in the world, ahead of Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema.

“If we think of Napoli, Osimhen is a true centre-forward,” Inzaghi said as quoted by TuttoNapoli.

“He attacks deep, and keeps the ball, Osimhen is probably the best right now, beyond Benzema, who, however, is less of an area centre forward, and perhaps than Giroud.”

Osimhen has currently scored nine Serie A goals from 11 matches and chipped in with two assists. His first goal of the campaign came in the 5-2 victory against Hellas Verona on August 15.
