Jorginho, an Arsenal midfielder, has revealed that Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli called him before signing Victor Osimhen.
Osimhen arrived in Serie A from Lille in 2020.
The Nigerian striker has gone on to establish himself as one of the world’s best strikers.
Osimhen currently leads Serie A in scoring with 18 goals in 19 appearances.

“They’re doing incredible things, and honestly, I didn’t know the guy on the wing [Kvaratskhelia],” Jorginho told DAZN.
“I observed Osimhen. I had played against him in the Champions League, and he had made our defenders work hard.
“Giuntoli called me before signing him, and I told him to sign him right away because he is very promising and doing really well. Everything is going well for them [Osimhen and Kvara]. There is a winning spirit.”
